Monsooned: A case study on project deadlines, the Indian ‘yes’ and high-context versus low-context communication.
Rebecca works with United Technologies, a Chicago based company. She is talking on the phone to Abhinav, the manager of one of United Technologies vendors for customer service outsourcing.
Rebecca: We really need to get all of the customer service representatives trained on our new process in the next two weeks. Can you get this done?
Abhinav: That timeline is pretty aggressive. Do you think it’s possible?
Rebecca: I think it will require some creativity and hard work, but I think we can get it done with two or three days to spare.
Rebecca: Now that our business is settled, how is everything else?
Abhinav: All’s well, although the heavy monsoons this year are causing a lot of delays getting around the city.
Two weeks later…
Abhinav: We’ve pulled all of our resources and I’m happy to say that 60% of the customer service representatives are now trained in the new process. The remaining 40% will complete the training in the next two weeks.
Rebecca: Only 60%? I thought we agreed that they all would be trained by now!
Abhinav: Yes . The monsoon is now over so the rest of the training should go quickly.
Rebecca: This training is critical to our results. Please get it done as soon as possible.
Abhinav: I am certain that it will be done in the next two weeks.

Rhodes, a wealthy businessman, and Axe, an artist, were involved in a business venture a few years ago, and Axe blamed Rhodes for the failure of that business venture. Despite the bad blood between the two, Rhodes, who was also an art collector, wanted one of Axe’s paintings because Axe was becoming more popular, and the value of his paintings was increasing. Rhodes sent Axe a letter stating that he would pay Axe $100,000 if Axe would agree to paint a painting specifically for Rhodes. When Axe received Rhodes’s letter, he was angry and wrote a quick letter to Rhodes not only rejecting Rhodes’s offer but saying that he thought Rhodes was a crook who should be in jail. As soon as Axe put the letter rejecting Rhodes’s offer in the mail slot at the post office, Axe had second thoughts about rejecting the offer and decided that he would paint a quick painting and take Rhodes’s $100,000. Axe immediately called Rhodes and said he accepted Rhodes offer and was ready to start on the painting immediately. The next day, Rhodes received the letter from Axe rejecting the offer. Now, Rhodes was angry because the letter said that Axe thought he was a crook and should be in jail, so Rhodes immediately called Axe and said the deal was cancelled. Was a contract between Rhodes and Axe formed? Why, or why not? If a contract was formed, did Rhodes have a legal basis for cancelling the contract? Your response must be at least 75 words in length.
