Norwegian people are very accustomed to take responsibility, they put their thrust into other people and institutions, and they are also more concerned with long-term results compared to strict and specific tasks at work.
Most Norwegian leaders prefer to be looked upon as a friend rather than a dictatorial leader. They are also not very used to give detailed working plans, and they would rather see their employees find the best solution. This can be very confusing and difficult for foreigners coming to Norway to work from other countries. Many foreigners are used to being told exactly what to do at work.
A lot of industries and companies want to highlight and make people aware of cultural differences. They want specific and concrete tools to achieve better understanding, communication, cooperation and HSE (health, security, environment) immediately and in the long run.
