Michael Kramer -Faculty - Department of Communication - College of Arts and Science - University of Missouri
"Dr. Michael Kramer's research centers on three main areas: employee transitions in organizational settings, emotion management in organizations, and group communication processes, particularly in non-profit organizations such as community theater, although he has recently begun investigating the relationship of researchers to institutional review boards. His work on employee transitions examines newcomers, transferees, recently promoted employees, employees being dismissed, and employees experiencing a merger or acquisition. He has typically focused on uncertainty reduction theory as part of this research. His book, Managing Uncertainty in Organizational Communication, presents his conceptualization of uncertainty in human interaction (2004, Lawrence Erlbaum Publishers). Michael is extremely diverse in the research methods he uses, ranging from quantitative research, to content analysis, to ethnographic work."

Toward a Communication Model for the Socialization of Voluntary Members - Communication Monographs
"Because most socialization/assimilation research focuses on employment as the primary membership role in groups and organizations, the accompanying models have failed to consider the unique characteristics of voluntary membership. In addition, those models have been criticized for being too linear and based on concepts of organizations as containers. Using principles of the bona fide group perspective and a case study, this paper develops a model that emphasizes the unique characteristics of the socialization of voluntary members. The multilevel model also examines how membership in various other groups, such as work and family, influence and interact with individuals' voluntary memberships. With a focus on communication, the model emphasizes the fluid process of voluntary associations in organizations with ambiguous boundaries. "
