1.0 Introduction

This section of the report deals with the historical background of the study, the historical background of Imo State environmental Agency, it also narrates the statement of problem, objective of the study, significance of the study, research questions and scope and limitation of the study.

1.1 Background Of The Study

Effective communication is and always has been an important feature in enhancing excellent managerial performance. Communication is the lifeblood of every phase of organization life. The basic theory of effective communication dictates that everyone is an organization should have all the information he needs to perform his job properly. Manager’s communication skill creates a climate for good human relations and provides effective motivations for employees.

What is communication? according to O’Shaughnessy (1976:209) sees communication as the means by which information is passed from one persons to the decisions makers and resulting decisions passed to these involved in executing them without superior or subordinates communication, there could be no organization since it would be impossible to get people to do in a coordinating way: people would be linked together or abstract chain of command but acting without chain of understanding.

Management in some organization seems incapable of communication effectiveness and successful with the work done.

Subordinates do not comprehend what they are told by superiors and the administrator does not hear clearly through what the subordinates are trying, to tell him, when such situation arises productivity will fall drastically. Therefore managers should be greatly concerned with information system and how they are working.

According to Onuta (1991:89) daily contract between subordinates and superior is the most important and suddenly used method of communication. The need together free flow of message through open channels of communication on which in a firm is essential for the smooth running of the organizational machinery. The success of any organization depends on the caliber of its administrative managers. Where a managers communication is poor, coordination is poor since coordination implies that people are manager has to interpret information generated by his subordinates and pass such information either upwards or horizontal to his superior and peer respectively.

In this way, they improve managerial performance. Hence, the information must be understandable between the sender / code and the receiver / decoder and must be acted upon before we say that communication process has been completed.

It is for the fore-going reason that research work center ground the role of effective communication in improving managerial performance a study of Imo State Environmental Protection Agency (ISEPA) Owerri.
