Q.

Tatas and Birlas are the pioneers of Indian industrialization. But their management styles are contrasting. Professionals from outside the Tata group manage the Tata companies with lot of operational freedom, whereas the Birla companies follow the traditional family management style with professionals close to the families managing the show. Is Birla style of management conducive for real growth of the companies in the present context? Your views please?

The TATA style of management is beneficial where the need of the hour is to expand ur outreach, bring in more cultural diversity into ur work force, and for coming up w/ new innovative ideas. The Brilla\'s style of management is beneficial where the need of the hour is to research & develop a particular technology / industrial innovation within a time frame. Not all people automatically prefer the TATA style of management. A TATA management approach requires an employee to have say 50 percent technical skills and 50 percent showmanship skills. A Brilla approach would require a candidate to have 90 percent technical skills and mebbe 1 percent showmanship skills. But if u don\'t have showmanship skills, in a TATA concern, you\'ll be urinated upon left, right and center continuously til ...more
