Communication has, of course, always been important for businesses since businesspeople have always needed to convey ideas to one another.  However, communications will become even more important for businesses as this century continues.  This is because of the increase in globalization that businesses are now experiencing.

As businesses deal with clients and colleagues around the world, communication skills become more important.  Communications are made more difficult because the people communicating are often from different cultures and backgrounds.  Because communications are becoming more difficult, it is going to be even more important that businesspeople be able to communicate well, especially with people from different cultures.
