  • When choosing a team to work with me for the future, I took my time in understanding the most important factor affecting land term business relationships - the culture. after working with outsourcing the isa my own company in USA, My own company in Norway and the UK, and again out-sourcing to the Ukraine and then India, I found that highly technical personnel are available everywhere. The technical level is not what we really need to worry about . It’s the culture, attitudes, language and what the people are made of. After many years of working with outsourcing , I settled in Sri Lanka as I found everything I have being looking for. I am very happy to see that this country has raised the bar in terms of quality considerably during the last 5 years and the people here are really want to do a good job.
