English term or phrase:prescient moment
M&M struck a deal with Ford to manufacture the Escort in India. I suggested that we set up a joint venture for R&D and told Ford that it would benefit immensely from the project. That was one of my more prescient moments! India’s IT outsourcing boom hadn’t happened;
and yet there I was trying to convince an American executive that India’s brainpower was not just inexpensive but world class. My counterpart looked at me as though I were nuts, of course, and politely suggested that we focus on the manufacturing venture.
