According to Jiwu WANG, communication in the world today has evolved from point-to-point to multipoint-to-multipoint, so the efficiency of communication is crucial, and informal forms of communication are often more efficient than formal forms of communication; from the perspective of corporate governance, saving communication costs and improving communication efficiency are the key to efficient and healthy development of enterprises.
