How Executives Stay Informed  
Stephen Abram points to an interesting looking study on executive decision-making:

"...most senior-level executives spend hours each week searching the Internet in frustration for business-related information that will help them stay informed and current. The largest group of respondents, 37%, reported spending four or more hours each week searching for information; 36% spent two to four hours each week on information searches."

You can apparently download the full study here, but it didn't work for me.

Nonetheless, very useful ammunition for the special librarian trying to justify their value to the organisation.
