Tom Peters warns the western world's workforce against India

The Grand Daddy of Corp. Consultants Tom Peters has warned the workforce of the western world against the kind of outsourcing that is now being done out of India. In Tom's words that is - "bio-tech research and complex approval processes of complex loans". He congratulates India but stresses the need for the western workforce to have a " incredible, incredible, incredible sense of urgency" and the "need to work and work and work" and "repurpose, repurpose and repurpose" and fashion oneself into a "brand".

Last war cry of the Samurai? : )

Tom might be glad to know that the Indian finance minister, has now announced, in the financial budget for 2007, a move to start taxing Indian BPO's and also made it more expensive for them to rent the already costly commercial office space (the only two areas of the budget I differ on with the F.M- I believe BPO's should have been spared from the M.A.T. since they are still in the process of evolution, unlike the Indian Software companies which are already prize atheletes and therefore, rightly under the ambit of this tax. The other provision to levy service tax on commercial office space is also ill advised.)Both these provisions would hurt the Indian BPO's, but I am not sure that can still give 'The Last Samurai' lasting hope. : )
