AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JRD TATA PDF

Everyone knows the Tatas. Some of you, at some point, might have even worked in an enterprise they run. But this multibillion dollar business conglomerate did not root in solid ground overnight.

Everyone knows the Tatas. Some of you, at some point, might have even worked in an enterprise they run. But this multibillion dollar business conglomerate did not root in solid ground overnight. It was the hardwork, commitment and vision of one man, who took what he had and made it the best one in the playground. Born into the illustrious and industrious Tata family, he grew up imbibing two polarised cultures — one from his sophisticated French mother and the second from his Parsi father.

Born in , Jehangir spent the first few years of his life in France, even serving a year in the Spahis regiment during the First World War. His father, Ratanji Dadabhoy Tata, had decided to move the family to London at this point. In between his many travels, JRD grew up to be a restless seeker of adventure and strived for excellence in every aspect of his life.

It was under his leadership that the Tata assets climbed from Rs 62 crore in to more than Rs 10, crore in On his th birthday, we celebrate the legacy of a man who took the business world by a storm and created a legacy that continues to exalt even today.

JRD Tata may be remembered for his fool-proof business strategy and unbelievable turnovers, but his true legacy as an entrepreneur started with thinking outside the box.

At a time when the World Wars were in play and the world was advancing in mechanics and technology, JRD decided to put his love for flying into action and turned his attention to the then less-popular aviation industry. Like every entrepreneur, he came up with a unique idea and made it a global success through sheer force of commitment. And, despite being applauded for his many contributions in raising the stakes and numbers, he always humbly credited his team first.

To make a good chappati, even a golden pin will not work unless the dough is good. JRD created business history at a time where India was straight-jacked by an economic limbo, even forty years into its Independence from British rule. Being able to secure and promote an industrial revolution, so to speak, as the pinnacle of a new kind of entrepreneurship was a serious risk that JRD was taking.

Although the Tata Group had been flourishing at the time of his ascent, he was the first to preclude it into the array of success it currently enjoys by bringing a whole new set of ideas to the table. It has its drawbacks, but being finicky is essential. JRD constantly co-related perfection with excellence and stated that it was only in the quest for the former that the latter would be a natural consequence.

JRD was a man of the future. He was the first to incorporate a functioning HR Department in his company. He also altered the selection process to be on the basis of merit instead of dynasty. JRD also pioneered for the eight-hour day, before even the United States or Britain had formally incorporated it into their legislation. To this extent, he wished to offer her the chance to meet other nations on an equal footing on all levels, starting with taking a lead in the world of business.
