Marketing Manager, Travel Agency Manager, and owner of a small company are occupations in three separate positions for evaluation. Within each paragraph is the scenario identifying the communication channel used, "formal or informal" (Organizational Behavior, 2011, p. 344) with defending and supporting reasoning. While serving in the Air Force, superiors assigned multiple, short timeframe, high priority taskings, much like the first scenario.
Within Scenario number one, is a role of a Marketing Manager, in which to develop a new marketing strategy for an exciting new beverage with worldwide distribution. The timeframe for this strategy is the end of the week to the vice president.

The lack of communication of not knowing of the username and password, the company created a policy letter, and forwarded to the travel agents, upon receipt that the travel agents contact the IT Department before the day of expiration to receive a new username and password. This letter is a formal communication channel setting a policy in place to keep the travel agents aware of the situation.
Upon the last role, the third scenario is a role of an owner of a small company, in a financial situation, to where four company personnel have to leave the company, to remain profitable, and keep the company afloat. The method to inform the company personnel is an informal communication channel, to explain the company has been losing money for a while and unable to pay the bills.
