i-Strategic is committed to delivering actionable insights based on facts and sound interpretation of intelligence, we understand the dynamics that shape political, economic and security environments in MENA. We give our clients the strategic advantage of understanding the mindset and motivations shaping the target state/sector in MENA.

MENA Culture is a vital component of understanding, positioning, planning, executing, and evaluating pronounced objectives. While a shared cultural undertone connects MENA societies across national borders, there are various and nuanced cultural differentiators between MENA states. Understanding and planning for cultural differences, managing expectations, trust building and establishing good-will are all hallmarks of successful missions and rewarding market entry strategies. At i-Strategic we know that cultural norms are a mission and business enhancer rather than a barrier. Building crucial cultural communication skills and training in un-spoken cultural sensitivities sets our clients apart from their competition, motivates their operation, and sets our clients closer to achieving their objectives.
