This compact one-day module, co-delivered in part by a German and an Indian national, both with working experience in India, will help to make sense of the often contradictory Indian experience and enable you to navigate successfully your way through interactions with Indians.
India is a nation with lots of diversity, and it is vibrant ,argumentative and self-confident. In terms of informationtechnology, Indians are already amongst the best in the world, so the country has therefore become a primary destination for outsourcing services. Strategically, India is seen as a counterweight to China for many industries. Few can dispute its strategic importance, growing middle class and market potential amongst the emerging markets just after China. Whilst linguistically India is thought to be easier to access, its culture is very different from any other and follows its own inner and complex logic.
