Tata group - management structure There are two decision-making bodies that define and direct the business endeavours of the Tata group. These are called the Group Executive Office and the Group Corporate Centre. Group Executive Office The Group Executive Office (GEO) defines and reviews the business activities of the Tata group and is involved in implementing programmes in corporate governance, human resources, the environment, etc.
The chief objective of the GEO is to make the Tata group more synergistic; it does this by strengthening the relationship between the group and its companies. The GEO creates a shared understanding of a Tata company's current activities, its strengths and its weaknesses. It then addresses the most strategic issues facing the company.
Apart from this, the GEO has reviewed the group's business portfolio and clustered companies into seven business sectors. The GEO assesses what unique value a company adds to a particular business sector and, conversely, what unique value the group can bring to that company. Besides Chairman Ratan N Tata, the GEO comprises R Gopalakrishnan, Ishaat Hussain, Kishor Chaukar and Arunkumar Gandhi.
