Process of Communication
Process of communication was introduced by the scientist Shannon in 1948. The process of communication essentially involves two persons or parties at two ends. One is the sender, and the other is the receiver. The transmission of the message or signal between the twice is called the process of communication.

Two way Process of Communication
Two way process of communication diagram given below.
Two-way communication process model are
- Idea sender
Communication between two processes are follows:
1. Idea sender
The First stage during the process of communication is an idea originates within the mind of the sender. The sender has to decide how to communicate-orally, telephonically, through writing or email or fax, etc.
The Second stage is of encoding the idea. To encode means to put a message in a set of symbols known to the sender and the receiver. The success of communication depends on the way the message is encoded.
The Third stage is the actual transmission through a medium / channel. The medium /v channel establishes the link between the sender and the receiver. The choice of a medium depends upon the availability of a common code or language.
In the Fourth stage during the process of communication is the decoding of the encoded message by the receiver. To decode means to interpret the set of symbols transmitted. This stage is considered the most important part of the cycle. Successful communication depends upon the receiver,s skill and ability to interpret the code; that is, to listen, read and understand properly and timely. Hence, the sender encodes and the receiver decodes.
The Fifth stage is the response from the receiver after he decodes the message. The moment the communicator gets the Receiver,s response; he interacts with the Receiver by conveying to the Receiver his sense of appreciation if the message has been received and decoded accurately by Receiver. The communicator may modify his communication or try to simplify or explain a little elaborately, in case the Receiver's response reveals that the Receiver has failed to understand the communication fully.
The Sixth stage during the process of communication is the feedback. Feedback is a measure success of the message.
