Why have we developed an India-specific cross cultural awareness training eLearning programme?
India is fast becoming the ‘next big thing’. Most projections see India growing into the world’s third-largest economy in the world by 2030 and its population overtaking that of China in the same timeframe. Most global businesses of any size already have an off-shore centre in India, but they are now also starting to see the country for what it really is – the biggest potential consumer market on the planet. As India grows so does our interest in how things actually work in India. How can we make a success of such a vast and complicated economy?
India can no longer be ignored – if you are not actively looking at India as a market, you will be within the next five years. This means that we need to develop a deeper understanding of the Indian mindset and how that impacts on attitudes in the business environment.
Global Business Culture has been running cross-cultural awareness training sessions on India for two decades, but we realise that we cannot reach everybody with our face-to-face interventions and that technology allows us to address a much wider audience through the power of digital technology.
Therefore, we have developed a comprehensive cultural awareness training digital learning hub, Global Business Compass, which we feel is a great back-up to the ‘live’ training events we run as well as allowing our clients to offer quality cross-cultural training interventions to a geographically dispersed workforce.
The digital hub is packed with a variety of informative learning offerings which also include a series of country-specific eLearning programmes on:
The digital learning hub and the India cultural awareness training programme within it are aimed at all employees who work in a global environment and who have the need to work smarter and more effectively with colleagues, clients and other stakeholders around the world. As a 24/7 resource people are able to dip in and out of the hub on an ‘as needs’ basis helping an organisation deliver appropriate and targeted training on a just-in-time basis.
The India-specific cultural awareness training programme includes:
As well as the country-specific eLearning cultural awareness courses outlined above, Global Business Compass also includes:
