Information Fatigue Syndrome

InformationToday it was the first time I heard about the Information fatigue syndrome defined as the stress that results from having to deal with excessive amounts of information.

In a report done by Reuters News Agency called ‘Dying for information?’ over 1000 managers and CEOs were were serveyed globally and it was found that information anxiety is now a part of most executives and a significant percentage of them, 43% find hard to make important decisions because of data overload, while they may be suffering from stress related health problems brought on by too much information.

What does this mean for executives and managers?
How could we act proactively to prevent information fatigue syndrome?

Feel free to share your answers 😉
