Q: Do you believe there will be more Inter-Continent Consulting Assignments?
A: Murad S. Mirza says
I believe they will increase, especially, to counter the 'Domino Effect' in the current economic conditions. This will mainly be facilitated by the multinational consultancy organizations who have the capability to address global issues. However, the mode of interaction between such organizations & their clients may see an increase in unconventional contact methods, e.g., Goto Meeting, primarily in politically unstable regions. This will also be boosted by the consultancy organizations looking for innovative cost effective ways to reach a wide range of existing and potential clients in different parts of the world.
The respective reliance on such guidance will be more prevalent in:
a. Subsidiaries of multinational organizations
b. Domestic businesses venturing into the international arena
c. Governments looking to improve their trade imbalances.
d.Organizations focused on cost-cutting and performance improvement measures
