Westerners and Indians are working more closely together and in greater numbers than ever before. The opportunities are vast, and so is the cultural divide. Misunderstanding, misinterpretation, missed deadlines and frustration due to cultural differences raise havoc on success. Any Westerner conducting business with Indians, and any Indian trying to figure out the West, will recognize the challenge. Craig Storti has helped more than 20 global companies in just this situation. With more than a dozen years of experience working between the two cultures, he has trained thousands of employees, interviewed hundreds of managers and has identified key cultural flashpoints. The result is a powerful series of Best Practices, the basis of Speaking of India. From the difference between the way Indians and Westerners use “yes” and “no” to the secrets of a successful conference call, to the changing status of women in the Indian workplace to the do’s and don’ts of daily interaction, this essential guide helps us realize the ambitious dreams of working together...once we understand each other!

Like it or not, every business—even one conducted from the kitchen table—is global. No matter the industry, employees now routinely travel to other countries or interact with foreign customers, vendors, or fellow employees. Or they conduct business over the phone, via e-mail, or through video links. As a result, they have to understand international customs and etiquette or risk losing customers or botching business relations. And understanding business customs in other cultures isn't merely playing good defense—it often leads to new products or service enhancements that help an enterprise grow. In Passport to Success, Jeanette Martin and Lillian Chaney apply their expertise in business etiquette, training, and intercultural communications to present a practical guide to conducting business successfully around the world. Each chapter in this book presents in-depth information on the business environment and culture in the top twenty trading partners of the United States: Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Germany, South Korea, Netherlands, France, Singapore, Taiwan, Belgium, Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Malaysia, Italy, India, and Israel. Chapters contain both practical tips and illustrative examples, and the book concludes with a listing of resources (books, magazines, organizations, and Web sites) for additional information. In addition, Passport to Success contains useful overview material that will help business people plan a trip abroad or a campaign to win customers in another country. Besides trade statistics and information on global trade agreements, readers will find information on using the Internet productively to conduct or seek business, how women can succeed in countries with traditional, male-oriented business cultures, how to build cross-cultural relationships, and ways language can enhance—or obstruct—business dealings. Every businessperson is now a player in the global market for goods and services. This book provides valuable tips that will help people avoid missteps and increase their sales and personal success when dealing with counterparts in other countries.

Divided in two sections, India - Cross-Cultural Business Behavior is based on the authors' 40 years of close involvement with India, including two expatriate assignments and decades of research and teaching. Part I of the book provides answers to 10 questions most often posed by Westerners doing business in India, including: Why do our suppliers in India constantly miss delivery deadlines? When does 'yes' really mean yes in India? Why do project teams and employees need to be micro-managed? Part II is a practical guide for families moving to India. This section addresses such critical concerns as how to find housing, how to get family members acclimated to India and its culture, and how to prepare for the challenges that will be faced on a day-to-day basis. This book is co-authored by Richard R. Gesteland, who also wrote the classic Cross-Cultural Business Behavior: Negotiating, Selling, Sourcing and Managing across Cultures.
