The Basic Elements of the Communications Process

Updated August 04, 2017
If you've texted your friend or given a business presentation, then you have engaged in the communications process. Any time two or more people get together to exchange messages, they are engaging in this basic process. Although it seems simple, the communications process is actually quite complex, with a number of components as you'll see.
The term communication process refers to the exchange of information (a message) between two or more people.
For communication to be successful, both parties must be able to exchange information and understand each other. If the flow of information is blocked for some reason or the parties cannot make themselves understood, then communication fails.
The Sender
The communications process begins with the sender, who is also called the communicator or source. The sender has some kind of information—a command, a request, an idea —that he or she wants to share with others. In order for that message to be received, the sender must first encode his message in a form that can be understood and then transmit it.
The Receiver
The person to whom a message is directed is called the receiver or the interpreter. In order to comprehend the information from the sender, the receiver must be able to first be able to receive the sender's information and then decode or interpret it. 
The Message
The message or content is the information that the sender wants to relay to the receiver.
It is relayed between the parties. Put all three together and you have the communications process as its most basic.
The Medium
Also called the channel, this is the means by which a message is transmitted. Text messages, for example, are transmitted through the medium of cell phones. 
The communications process reaches its final point when the message has been successfully transmitted, received, and understood.
