Smith Professor Releases Book on Tata Group Success Formula

Tata Group acquisitions such as Jaguar Land Rover may have American consumers taking notice of the Indian company as a global force for the first time, but the company has been a subject of an in-depth study on how to transform large corporations by Sunil Mithas, professor of information systems at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. His new book, “Dancing Elephants and Leaping Jaguars,” documents the leadership strategies and management interventions that drove Tata’s growth following the liberalization of the Indian economy in the early 1990’s. Such peers as GE, Siemens and IBM have struggled to grow in comparison. Mithas, who recently discussed his Tata-based study in an “Innovation Engine” podcast, says his work gives “a framework for organizations to rediscover their potential and charge ahead using the levers of business excellence and innovation.”
