MUNOZ HERNANDEZ, Mario Humberto. Communication and productivity in small and medium sized businesses of a textile cluster in Colombia. Contad. Adm [online]. 2012, vol.57, n.2, pp.223-244. ISSN 0186-1042.
The paper analyzes the view of managers and workers about communication and its influence in productivity. The study consists of an applied survey to a 17 companies sample from a textile business cluster in Colombia. These companies were selected from a list of 36 companies of the Asociación Colombiana de las Micros, Pequeñas y Medianas Empresas (ACOPI, Antioquia). As shown in the paper, the managers and the workers believe that face to face communication, talks and meetings have a close relation to productivity's growth.
