Relying only on oral communication may not be
sufficient as business communication is formal and
Oral communication is less authentic than written
communication as they are informal and not as organ-
ised as written communication.
Oral communication is time-saving as far as daily
interactions are concerned, but in case of meetings,
long speeches consume lot of time and are unpro-
ductive at times.
Oral communications are not easy to maintain and
thus they are unsteady.
There may be misunderstandings as the information
is not complete and may lack essentials.
It requires attentiveness and great receptivity on
part of the receivers/audience.
Oral communication (such as speeches) is not fre-
quently used as legal records except in investigation

Limitations of oral
Written communication has great significance in
today s business world. It is an innovative activity
of the mind. Effective written communication is
essential for preparing worthy promotional materials
for business development. Speech came before writing.
But writing is more unique and formal than speech.
Effective writing involves careful choice of words,
their organisation in correct order in sentences for-
mation as well as cohesive composition
of sentences. Also, writing is more valid
and reliable than speech.
Written communication helps in lay-
ing down apparent principles, policies
and rules for running of an organisation.
It is a permanent means of commu-
nication. Thus, it is useful where record
maintenance is required.
It assists in proper delegation of
responsibilities. While in case of oral
communication, it is impossible to fix
and delegate responsibilities on the
grounds of speech as it can be taken
back by the speaker or he may refuse
Written communication is more pre-
cise and explicit.
Effective written communication
develops and enhances an organisation s
image. It provides ready records and
Legal defenses can depend upon
written communication as it provides
Written communication does not
save upon the costs. It costs huge in
terms of stationery and the manpower
employed in writing/typing and deliv-
Also, if the receivers of the written
message are separated by distance and
if they need to clear their doubts, the
response is not spontaneous.
Written communication is time-con-
suming as the feedback is not imme-
diate. The encoding and sending of
message takes time.
Merits of written communication
Speech comes before
writing. But writing is
