The four patterns of communication within work groups are the wheel, the chain, the circle, and the all-channel network. They operate as follows:

In a wheel network, most information travels through one central member of the work group. Other group members communicate only with this central member and do not communicate directly with each other. Wheel networks are most common in groups with pooled interdependence.

In a chain network, information flows from one group member to another in a preset sequence. Group members communicate only with the one or two group members who are adjacent to them in the chain. Groups involved in sequentially interdependent tasks are most likely to use chain networks.

In a circle network, information flows between group members who share some dimension such as experience, expertise, or physical location. It is not directly dependent on task relationships.

In an all-channel network, information flows among all group members as every group member communicates with every other group member. All-channel networks are primarily used by groups that manage highly complex activities involving reciprocal interdependence.
