Group communication can occur in different settings, mainly in regard to formal and informal groups. Each of these group types can be broken down further into subtypes to properly understand how the communication is structured. For example, a formal group consists of an operational – or work group, which is primarily consisting of direct contact from a supervisor to the workers in the group, as well as communication between the workers (Baack, 2012). Another type of subgroup is a committee, which communicates roughly in the same fashion – in addition to keeping minutes, or notes of the conversation that occurred. Finally, a project team will communicate similar to work groups as well, with periodic progress reports being noted and filed to keep track of specific progress of the project.
