We love the story told by Azim Premji, chairman of Wipro, to illustrate how Western companies don't always get the Indian market. When Ford, he explained, decided to make a big move into India, it decided to pare down a $20,000 model it made in the US to a $15,000 version for Asia, which it figured would be more affordable.

What Ford hadn't realised was that a $15,000 car would be the preserve of Indians wealthy enough to employ a driver – most... Continue reading

Good article about the recent trends in outsourcing industry. US companies are increasingly preferring to work with smaller providers with niche expertise, better client attention and stronger value proposition.

A comprehensive poll of over 6,547 outsourcing clients worldwide found that smaller vendors are satisfying more clients, and to a much greater degree, in comparison with their big-ticket counterparts.
