    A Basic Communications Model

    The Basic Communications Model is the starting point for analyzing the communications process in terms of the intent of the sender, the needs of the receiver, and the elements of the communications environment.

    Use the model as your starting point when analyzing messages in your assignments.

    The communications model above shows the basic components present in a simple two-way exchange of information. Every communication, whether it is real-time, such as with a face-to-face meeting or a telephone conversation, or asynchronous, as with e-mail and fax, involves the following:

    - The environment in which the communication takes place
    - A sender or encoder who starts with a purpose
    - A message created to accomplish the purpose through the following:
    o Content, or the words and images
    o Media, or the format in which the content is presented, such as audio, text, video, or multimedia
    - Technology, which is made up of the following:
    o Encoding and presentation tools
    o Channels, or data networks appropriate to that technology
    - Noise, which is anything that reduces the likelihood of the message being interpreted the way the sender intended
    - A receiver or decoder who interprets the message
    - A feedback message that reverses the process

    Note. A more advanced communication model would consider multiple parties, the different types of each component, and the perceptual filtering of a message done by both the sender and receiver-the characteristics, thoughts, and emotions of all parties that contribute to the message's formation and interpretation.

    Utilizing this communication model, please assist with this question.

    Select three business-to-business messages.

    - Analyze the messages using the communication process. The analysis should include a descriptive explanation of characteristics that would improve the messages, including the following:

    o Descriptions of the purpose, sender, receiver, message, environment, technology, noise, and feedback

    o Explanations of whether the message and technology were appropriate given the environment and purpose

    - Write a business-to-business message that has ABC Company asking to create a working relationship with XYZ Company.

    - Write an unfavorable reply message to ABC Company. The message can be denying the working relationship, for example, due to ABC's credit, prices, reputation, services provided, needs, technology, and so on.

    - Write a 1,500- to 1,750-word paper that includes your analysis of the business-to-business messages using the communication process.
