Topic Description:
Globalization and technology has levelled the playing field in today’s global market.
Companies in the eastern and western side of the globe have been coming together in a symbiotic relationship that is mutually beneficial and a win-win for both sides. The Western world and US based companies capitalize on the intellect, highly educated labor force and the low labor rates offered by companies in the Eastern world. The Indian and Eastern companies benefit from the financial rewards and gain of technical expertise derived out of the relationship. 
The US based companies are one of the largest sources of profitable projects to the Eastern world. While the advantages exist, there are also pitfalls that eastern companies need to be aware of in, order to build a strong relationship with US based companies. Projects that succeed are based on having a clear understanding of the client expectations.
This exciting, easy to understand presentation and talk will navigate through the complexities of the following, in the context of working with US based companies:
1. The success factors in building a strong relationship and successful delivery of projects to US based companies.
2. The pitfalls to avoid in dealing with US based companies.
3. The fears of the Western world in outsourcing to the East.
4. Risks involved in remote based projects.
5. Developing a sound project management methodology.
Expected Take-away:
The presentation will be beneficial across the board, from a novice to an experienced senior level audience dealing with US based companies or businesses.
 Everyone will walk away learning something new in an exciting world where the East meets the West.
