The senior managers of Norwegian businesses prefer to communicate electronically, according to a Scandinavian IT study.

The study reportedly shows that Norwegian senior managers prefer telephone and e-mail to meeting in person. The research was carried out by Norsk Gallup for Norwegian telecommunications provider Telenor in businesses and public administration in Denmark, Norway and Sweden and included about 600 persons in senior positions.

According to the results, 37% of the Norwegian business leaders see e-mail as the most important means of communication while 24% said the fixed telephone line was the most important and 12% preferred the mobile phone.

This can be compared to 60% of Swedes and 42% of Danes in similar positions saying that meeting in person is the best way of communicating.
