Asia is shaking the world

Time to market mantra in Asia: “speed, speed, speed”

But the mentality is very different from other parts of the world in Asia: Flexibility, customisation and speed of execution are extremely important. Clients expect flexibility and on-demand customisation. Speed is of the essence too, when it comes to time to market.
