In his thesis, INTEGRATIVE COMMUNICATION FOR ORGANISATIONAL SUSTAINABILITY, Dr Adriaan Louis Taljaard investigated the role that an integrative communication function plays (with the major constructs representing it being messaging, structure, management, core competencies, dynamic capabilities, co-value-creation) in organisational sustainability.

The framework encompasses and represents several subject fields, covering financial management, business management, human resource management, communication management and law.
