The paper attempts to analyze the implications of the Internet on the individual lives of people globally and the resulting impact on corporations. The paper explains that since businesses of all sizes and from all industries are striving to be more global than ever, this pushes individuals and cultures together in the pursuit of business strategies and initiatives. The paper explores globalization in Indian call centers and how the culture of the Schindler Elevator Company from Switzerland clashes with Indian ideas. The paper shows how westernization influences widely divergent cultures just as much as westernized nations fail in their attempts to accomplish business strategies in widely divergent cultures.
