    Of all the stories the tales of TanishTata SCIP and their acuisition of Tetley stayed with meIn the story of Tanish it is inspiring to understand how the people involved have turned it into the brand that it is today despite its slow start in the market during its inception It highlighted impact and necessity of strong brand management to make things workTata SCIP hightlights the group's efforts in trying to give it back to society It brought up some alarming numbers of how only 22% of the women graduated every got into work force in India and how the numbers dwindle even further by the time it reaches the level of Mid Level management The numbers might be a bit dated by it draws our attention to how much work needs to be done in this caseTata's Tetleys acuisition was probably one of the biggest ever global acuisitions by an Indian company The story details the efforts and the commitment showcased by everyone involved to make it successfulThe rest of the stories somehow could not hold my interest on the whole Tata's first car was interesting in parts though

    First hand account of all things TATA by a TATA insider You can't ask for The book lets you into why the Tata Group is the way it is and its operating ethos The best part is that its not a TATA is Great book It doesn't shy away from pointing out some of the short comings and also accounts things that didn't go well Its an account of 8 of the defining stories related to The Tata Group which give you a glipmse into the TATA WAY And in the intial pages when you read that the Tata Way is Pioneering Purposive Principled and Not Perfect you get start trusting that you're going to get an honest account and Harish Bhatt doesn't let you down

    To judge the truthfulness of this book would be a daunting task because one could never know the real truth behind the 8 absolutely fantastic tales from the company that is respected in India for its vision in the future The 8 stories described in the book tell the story of why Tata is so well respected doesn't only tell us the good pioneering stories but tells us what Tata did in it's own Tata way to make these ideas a successful ones and what it does to keep the respect it has in the eye of the public All in all good read can be finished in a few sittings

    A glance at some of the stories from the biggest corporate house in India The account serves the stories with an extra slice of humility and overdoes it so very often that you start suspecting whether it was this humility that holding back TATA for all those yearsThe thing you get it that general management practices in India still have a long way to go esp in uality control and Productivity given that TATA pretty much defines the upper limit
