The "M" way : time + people = money (30 min.) -- Fun@Sun: making of global workplace (32 min.) -- July boys: new global players (30 min.).
Interviewer and principal researcher Carol Upadhya ; executive producer A.R. Vasavi.
The three films explore the culture of outsourced work and the molding of a workforce for the global high-tech services industry. Each film focuses on one of the major types of software companies located in Bangalore. Fun@sun provides an inside look at Indian Engineering Centre (the subsidiary of American company Sun Microsystems), and highlights the way American-style management practices are transplanted to India. The 'M' way depicts the high-pressure, customer-centric work culture of MphasiS Limited, an Indian IT services company. July Boys was shot at July Systems, a new kind of venture capital-funded, high-end startup company in Bangalore.
