Do Touch That Dial: A Guide To Continuous Response Measurement In Agricultural Communications, Cara Lawson, Laura Fischer, Lauren Lagrande, Kelsi Opat

Journal of Applied Communications

As the gap in agricultural experiences between farmers and consumers grow, it is important for agricultural communicators to communicate strategically with their audiences and be proactive in addressing consumers’ concerns. Communication media can present a variety of messages or pieces of information that represent multiple perspectives within one unit. The dynamic nature of communication media, such as video and audio messages, lead to the fluctuation of feelings and responses to different elements within one singular message. While agricultural communications has traditionally relied upon quantitative and qualitative survey data, there are likely gaps in complete understandings of individual perceptions in response ...

Managing Stakeholder Expectations In A Politically Polarized Society: An Expectation Violation Theory Approach, Aimei Yang, Adam Saffer, Yiqi Li Sep 2020

Managing Stakeholder Expectations In A Politically Polarized Society: An Expectation Violation Theory Approach, Aimei Yang, Adam Saffer, Yiqi Li

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

In a polarized society, organizations are increasingly forced to take sides on controversial corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues. In recent years organizations have been challenged for their wrongdoings, inactions, or misinterpretations of societal expectations, which have drawn questions about their CSR efforts. The current study draws upon expectation violation theory to examine how stakeholders’ expectations for an organization’s CSR efforts and their observed accountability for those CSR efforts influence two aspects of expectancy violations—violation importance and violation expectedness—while controlling for stakeholders’ perceived reputation of an organization and political ideologies. Survey findings indicate that stakeholders’ perceptions of an ...

Open-ended semi-structured interviews with founders and executive committee members of Leadership Roundtable revealed stakeholders practiced discourse of renewal to help the Catholic Church, an offending organization, recover from a crisis. This study also assessed the extent to which God and religion motivated stakeholders’ responses. Results suggest religion is ...


The Tensions Of Strategic Communication Decision-Making: An Exploratory Examination Of Theory And Practice, Robert S. Littlefield Sep 2020

The Tensions Of Strategic Communication Decision-Making: An Exploratory Examination Of Theory And Practice, Robert S. Littlefield

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

The Tensions of Strategic Communication Decision-Making (TSCD) is introduced as an applied theory describing the way decision-makers experience a risk or crisis and prioritize their strategic communication responses to maintain positive relationships with their publics. Relational Dialectics Theory is applied to illustrate how tensions between organizations and publics influence communication decisions. The strategic messages used by the World Health Organization regarding the Zika virus mega-crisis provide a backdrop illustrating how TSCD is enacted. Theoretical and practical implications for decision-making suggest that TSCD contributes to a more robust understanding of how the changing context in a crisis prompts the prioritization of ...
