Mobile Business Communication and Collaboration, Interpersonal Communication, and Business Etiquette

  1. 1. What You Should Be Teaching Your Students about Mobile Business Communication and Collaboration, Interpersonal Communication, and Business Etiquette
  2. 2. "Bovée and Thill are the only authors who explain and illustrate in every chapter how mobile is revolutionizing business communication. “Surprisingly, although we’re in the midst of a mobile revolution, no other business communication authors cover mobile business communication, which should tell you everything you need to know about which authors keep their textbooks current.”
  3. 3. Don’t assume that colleagues and customers around the world use the same communication tools you use. For example, although mobile phone usage is high in most countries around the world, the percentage of users with smartphones and the broadband service required for communication services such a video varies widely.
  4. 4. An important aspect of mobile collaboration and mobile communication in general is unified communication, which integrates such capabilities as voice and video calling, voice and video conferencing, instant messaging, and real-time collaboration software in a single system.
  5. 5. Mobile device habits say a lot about how much respect you have for the people around you. Selecting obnoxious ring tones, talking loudly in open offices and public places, using your phone right next to someone else, making excessive or unnecessary personal calls during work hours, invading someone’s privacy with your phone’s camera without permission, texting during meals, allowing incoming calls during meetings, are all disrespectful choices that will reflect negatively on you.
  6. 6. Virtual assistants, such as the Siri voice recognizition system on iPhones, raise an important etiquette dilemma. From doing simple web searches to dictating entire memos, these systems may be convenient for users, but they can create distractions and annoyances for other people. As with other public behaviors, think about the affect you have on others before using these technologies.
  7. 7. The Etiquette App helps you make appropriate choices in a variety of social and business situations.
