Abstract

The 'grapevine' is the informal communication network found within organisations and it's an unofficial and personal communication channel. The term can be traced back to the US civil war in the 1860s when the telegraph wires strung through the trees and resembled grapevines. Nowadays, a grapevine basically means deriving information from places other than the official source.
