much extra effort to explore alternate strategies and contingency planning. We are pleased to see our
focus recognized this way”. Describing the Global Sourcing practice, Mano added, “Ultimately this
became our response to establish and accelerate our global presence. Simply put, we took it upon

leadership in Sri Lanka to have global roles.”
