Book Title: The Tata Group From Torchbearers to Trailblazers

Book Author: Dr. Shashank Shah

There are approximately 100 companies selling their products and provide services across the globe. Similarly, 700,000 employees contributing to a revenue of US$100-billion. One of them is India’s largest and most globalized business enterprise, The Tata Group. Specifically, the Tata name is known for salt, software, cars, communications, housing, and hospitality.

The questions that arise in every mind:

How did they come so far?

What they did to own groom leadership, delight customers and drive business excellence?

How did they maintain a brand and corporate values that are being considered gold standard?

A deep-dive into the Tata universe brings forth many lesser-known facts and insights. It also brings you face-to-face with business decisions and outcomes that are most intriguing:

  • How did Tata Motors turnround Jaguar Land Rover when Ford failed to do so?
  • Why wasn’t TCS listed during the IT-boom?

  • Why wasn’t Tata Steel’s Corus acquisition successful?
