Communication norms

Companies such as Merck have created acronyms for their digital communicationslike:

  • “Four Hour Response (4HR)”
  • “No Need to Respond (NNTR)”

They bring predictability and certainty to virtual conversations. Individual teams can also establish their own norms — e.g., to use or not use Slack, Google Docs, or Whatsapp groups.
