The Dichotomy of the Rapidly Changing Indian Business Environment
India has truly emerged as a powerhouse in the outsourcing industry. While the Indian business environment is rapidly changing, however, most of India’s 1.3 billion people still struggle to meet their daily requirements in terms of food and housing. Indian business culture can differ dramatically depending on region, industry, non-Indian influences, and so forth. On one end of the spectrum are more traditional attitudes relating to bureaucracy, processes, women, and minorities. On the other end are western-influenced businesses run by MBAs, Indian or foreign-obtained, whose attitudes reflect the direct impact of globalization on India.
