With over 100 companies offering products and services across 150 countries, 700,000 employees contributing a revenue of US$ 100 billion, the Tata Group is India's largest and most globalized business conglomerate.

The Tatas are known for salt, software, cars, communications, housing, hospitality, steel and gold. But how did they come so far? How did they groom leadership, delight customers, drive business excellence and acquire global corporations? How did they maintain a brand and corporate values that are considered the gold standard?

A deepdive into the Tata universe, The Tata Group brings forth hitherto lesser-known facts and insights. It also brings you face-to-face with the most intriguing business decisions and their makers. How did Tata Motors turn around 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?

This definitive book tells riveting tales and provides insider accounts of the adventure and achievement, conflict and compassion, dilemmas and decisions of dozens of Tata companies.

The result of over a decade of rigorous research and interviews with more than a hundred leaders at Tata, this book decodes the Tata way of business, making it an exceptional blend of a business biography and management classic.

What a terrific book! The Tata businesses articulated a stakeholder philosophy more than 100 years before it was "(re)discovered" by the West. This book is a great example of why we need more business history that is global. And it serves as an icon for how we can learn about businesses that can work all over the worldA commendable, riveting account of impeccable integrity, grit, passion and perseverance that defines the Tata Group-an iconic brand synonymous with visionary leadership and ethical, inspirational business practices. That torch lit almost two centuries ago continues to blaze a trail worthy of accolade and emulation!The story of the House of Tata inspires us by showing that service and success can go hand-in-hand, especially amidst turbulence and change. Shashank does this story much justiceTata is a microcosm of India-gyroscopically balanced, colloidally stable, complex, large, highly diverse, yet unified by a soft glue. This book suggests the secret formulation of that glue, which has helped Tata remain India's no. 1 corporate for over eighty years, ever since corporate rankings have been measured in India. I found it a great read!This book highlights the Tata principles of business and their success strategies by analysing the potential and performance of business in India over the last 150 years. From colonial rule to Independence, from Licence Raj to the dawn of globalization, the Tata saga has been deeply interwoven with the destiny of a resurgent nation. Shashank narrates this great story with passion and a deep sense of purpose. If there was one book to be read on the Tata Group, this would be worth the timeShashank Shah narrates the Tata story with great passion. You will find in this book a broad sweep of Tata history and a wealth of interesting anecdotes, which beautifully illustrate the character of the Tata Group. The author has revisited many crossroads and brings to vivid life many defining moments, which will inspire you and also make you reflect. You will thoroughly enjoy the interesting stories, the engaging narration and the invaluable lessons that this book holds for all of usThis book provides a fascinating overview of the story of India's most admired group as a torchbearer of industrial capitalism for 150 years. Through a simple narrative, exciting stories and insightful analysis, Shashank decodes the Tata way of business that has enabled them to emerge as a trailblazer on the global platform. A definitive book on the subject, and a must-read for all who wish to build successful businesses with a social conscienceAs India's biggest business group since records began in 1939, the Tata Group has an incredibly rich history of growth and successes, of mysteries and failures spread over 150 years. Shashank's paring and peeling of the Tata Group into seven sections with a clear relationship between the parts is remarkable. I am sure his readers and students will appreciate the crispness of the omnibus that is The Tata Group: From Torchbearers to TrailblazersTata is not just India's largest conglomerate, but one of the world's most important businesses. In The Tata Group: From Torchbearers to Trailblazers, Shashank has written the definitive history of the enterprise that spearheaded India's new era of globalization, while also providing a colourful account of how it will play a critical role in the country's economic futureA well-written narrative of the Tata way of business
