The communication function is the means to unify an organized activity, through transfer of information from one individual to another, or from one system to another.<br />According to IBRAHIM FIBER LIMITED they define communication by focusing on three objectives<br /><ul><li>A = Attention
  2. 2. B= Brief
  3. 3. C= Clarity</li></ul>1.2 Importance of Communication<br />Communications is the means by which people are linked together in an organization to achieve a common purpose.

In an organization, there can be two types of communication, i.e. internal and external. Internal communication means communication within the organization, whereas external communication is the communication with the outside environment.<br /> <br />The following diagram depicts the purpose and function of communication in an IBRAHIM FIBER LIMITED organization.<br />As can be seen from the above diagram, the purposes of internal communication in an IFL are as follows:<br />2. Internal communication<br />Inside communication means giving and receiving information by all hierarchical levels. It includes vertical communication covering downward communication, upward communication, horizontal communication and diagonal communication. It includes communication flowing at any intermediate level as well as at operating level, or top management level, because internal communication is indeed required by all who work together in an organization to accomplish common goal.<br />2.1 Requirements for Effective Internal Communication:<br />Internal communication must be recognized as an essential tool of management. It is a way to achieve corporate objectives, build teamwork, and motive: It can make managers become better leaders. This requirement recognizes that, employee attitudes and resulting performance are improved by effective communication. <br />Great emphasis must be placed on communication and measurement Communication cannot be left to chance. There must be a plan who communicates that how to whom, for what purpose and to what effect. <br />Top management must establish a communication climate other divisions and departments will reflect this climate. <br />A long‐term investment in professional talent and communication programming must be made Programming and qualified people cost money, but it is well spent. <br />Written communication setup of Ibrahim Fiber Limited<br />Written messages also take many forms. At one extreme are the scribbled notes and at the other are formal reports. Regardless of the form, written messages have one big advantage they let us to plan and control the message. The other advantages of written communication are that it can provide records, references, and legal defenses when needed. Written messages can be transmitted to a large audience through the mail or through mass media like newspapers etc. Written communication is also useful in maintaining uniformity in policies and procedures. However, disadvantages of written communication are that the feedback is not immediate, effective messages are difficult to produce if the sender is not sufficiently skilled, and the written communication may create heaps of paper which may become difficult to manage. <br />“IFL strongly focuses on written communication”<br />In the following about different common forms of written communication are explained<br />2.4 LETTERS<br />The medium used for written messages to persons outside the organization is the business letters.<br />Business letters are substitute of personal visits and paper representatives of the writer.

Letters are written to the customers as<br />well as to other external agencies like suppliers, taxation authorities, governmental regulatory<br />bodies etc.<br />2.5 Parts of a Business Letter<br />Essential PartsNon-essential partsHeadingreference lineDateattention lineInside addresssubject lineSalutationenclosureMain body of the lettercomplimentary closesignature<br />2.6 Memorandums<br />Memorandums are in contrast to the letters which are used for routine in day-to-day exchange of information within the organization and also for downward communication.
