Control (organisation) and change (innovation) are two concepts that are inherent in the notion of communication; an innovative, dynamic, ever- changing, risk-taking and adaptive process that generates new relationships, new growth and new ways of thinking.

Key topics and their effect on communication that are addressed in this latest edition include social media; global recession; international and crosscultural communication in New Zealand and globally; and ethics, sustainability and accountability:
