Organizational Semiotics

What is Organizational Semiotics?

‘Organizational Semiotics’ is the study of information flow in organizations. It is concerned with the creation, nature, characteristics, processing, and the storage of data in a company.
Organizational semiotics also helps in achieving better efficiency at organizing the information by treating the companies as information systems that create, process and store the data. Based on the current framework of information management in a company, organizational semiotics helps develop theoretical frameworks as well as processes for analyzing, modelling, designing and implementation of information systems.
Organizational semiotics originated in 1973 in Ronald Stamper’s book on Information which was supposed to be the first chapter on the information systems design. The book was named ‘Organizational Semiotics’.
