Research Brief Series: Beyond Tactics | The Strategic Contribution of Communication

As an IC Kollectif Gold Industry Partner, we’re pleased to offer the seventh edition of their Research Brief Series.

One of the big challenges for communication professionals is to describe in a paragraph what their strategic contribution is. Often the response is to describe what they do (tactics) rather than what their contribution can be. This edition presents the Global Capability Framework developed by the Global Alliance of Public Relations and Communication Management with academics and professional organizations. The framework lists capabilities under three headings, and each capability has a list of sub-capabilities:

  • Communication capabilities: those that describe the specific contribution of the functional specialism of communication (or public relations if this is the preferred term)
  • Organizational capabilities: those that describe communication’s contribution to the organization
  • Professional capabilities: those that describe the nature of being a professional
