The writer argues that communication gaps can be completely destructive for a business organization and so there must be adequate knowledge and planning between all involved parties.

Infrastructure Gaps
Information Processing

From the Paper:

"One major and easily identified communication gap within my organization has less to do with the people communicating and more to do with the tools implemented to effect communication. Lack of appropriate or adequate communications infrastructure is a growing concern for many organizations, both within the business world and in other sectors (Friedrich 2008). While this is generally not a problem with intra-office communication, as all phones and computers are centrally connected and easily called up when needed, as more and more off-site and inter-office communication has become necessary on a day-to-day basis, the communications infrastructure has failed to keep pace.
"Some of the necessary adjustments are simple: a well-maintained and frequently verified list of cell phone numbers is an incredibly basic yet necessary piece of the infrastructure puzzle. As wireless Internet becomes both more available and more universally available, both through extensive networks and available products for setting up portable hotspots, both voice and text communications can also be facilitated with greater ease, and disseminated to recipients in diverse locations more easily and with greater assuredness (Friedrich 2008). New technologies enable communication to become at once more comprehensive and more streamlined and simplified, creating more efficiency (Friedrich 2008)."
