ANALYSIS OF DATA :

We have conducted a detailed report (using the BCG Matrix) of the portfolio of companies in the Tata Group. This involved analyzing the sectors in which the Tata group operates as well as the companies in the Tata Group within each industry. We studied the operational and financial performances of each company to understand their growth stories. Particular emphasis was laid on identifying the organic and inorganic growth routes pursued by each of these companies under the Tata umbrella. The conclusions drawn about these companies are based on analysis of the global strategy of the Tata group and detailed conversations with top executives in the Tata Group.

The analysis reveals that Tata Steel, Tata Power, Tata Motors, and Indian Hotels emerge as bright Stars (high market growth, high market share). Hence, they should be retained, and the investment in these companies should be increased. Tata Chemicals and Tata Tea emerge as the Cash Cows (low market growth, high market share) and should be held on to for the time being. Some of the Question Marks (high market growth, small market share) are Tata Teleservices, Voltas, and Tata Communications

CONCLUSION:

Many Tata companies have achieved global leadership in their businesses. For instance,

  1. Tata Communications is #1 international wholesale voice, provider
  2. Tata Motors is among the top ten commercial vehicle manufacturers in the world.
  3. Tata Steel is among the top fifteen best steelmakers and TCS is the second largest IT services company in the world by market cap and profit.
  4. Tata Global Beverages is the second-largest tea company in the world
  5. Tata Chemicals is the world’s second-largest manufacturer of soda ash.

Employing a diverse workforce in their operations, Tata companies have made significant local investments in different geographies.

The Tata trusts, majority shareholders of Tata Sons, have endowed institutions for science and technology, medical research, social studies, and the performing arts. The trusts also provide aid and assistance to non-government organizations working in the areas of education, healthcare, and livelihoods. Tata companies themselves undertake a wide range of social welfare activities, especially at the locations of their operations, as also deploy sustainable business practices

Going forward, Tata companies are building multinational businesses that seek to differentiate themselves through customer-centricity, innovation, entrepreneurship, trustworthiness, and values-driven business operations, while balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders including shareholders, employees and civil society.

DISCUSSION:

How are Tata technologies?

Pros:

  1. Tata Brand company.
  2. Maintenance of good personal and professional life.
  3. Perks and appraisals are better than a rest service based company, often more than 10%.
  4. Experienced people and will enrich your work experience.
  5. Few policies are excellent, like paid maternity and paternity leaves.

Cons:

  1. Being a service based company, you’ll not get the required experience in R&D or say in new product development.
  2. Often, the acceptance of new technology or work you’ll get depends on a client for which you have to work.
  3. Experienced people also has a drawback, and it does not have a typical IT sector feeling. You have to call your seniors as “Sir.”

SUGGESTION:

The Tata trusts, majority shareholders of Tata Sons, have endowed institutions for science and technology, medical research, social studies, and the performing arts. The trusts also provide aid and assistance to non-government organizations working in the areas of education, healthcare, and livelihoods.

Tata companies themselves undertake a wide range of social welfare activities, especially at the locations of their operations, as also deploy sustainable business practices.

Going forward, Tata companies are building multinational businesses that seek to differentiate themselves through customer-centricity, innovation, entrepreneurship, trustworthiness, and values-driven business operations, while balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders including shareholders, employees and civil society.

As the battle between Tata Sons Ltd and its ousted chairman Cyrus Mistry moves from the boardroom to the courts, one question that has split stakeholders and external observers are whether the 148-year-old group needs to restructure itself to forge ahead.

The group also needs to relook its governing structure and clearly define the role of each entity. If Tata Trusts, which owns a two-thirds stake in Tata Sons, is not happy with the performance of a chairman, then it should be discussed at appropriate forums instead of him being fired through a non-listed agenda item like ‘any other items,’ said Ramachandran. That’s how Mistry was shot at the 24 October Tata Sons board meeting.

The group needs to address possible areas of conflict and set the terms of engagement between the three tiers (Tata Trusts, Tata Sons, and the operating companies).
