This process may be presented diagrammatically as shown Below. Message sent via various communication channels Feed back Source: (Denhardt, Denhardt amp. Aristigueta, p-272) Communication is a complex process that not only involves the sender and the receiver but also involves how the recipients interpret the message (Denhardt, Denhardt amp. Aristigueta, p-272). This means that communication is not a straight forward process as it seems to be but rather it is a complex and a technical process (Denhardt, Denhardt amp. Aristigueta, p-272). Therefore, it is vital to keep in mind the following considerations when communicating: some information tends to be unintentionally complex because the sender may intend to mean a different thing than what the receivers have understood (Denhardt, Denhardt amp.
