Tata Motors to restructure management – Reveals new mission, vision and values
Tata Motors is planning a new structuring strategy to shrink its white collar workforce from 14 to 5 layers.
In what can be claimed to be the biggest organizational restricting in the company history, Tata Motors is going ahead with a new plan to restructure its white collar workforce from a current 14 layer to 5 layer system.

The new structuring strategy will see two top layers of managers who will be in-charge of executing these strategies as initiated by the executive committee consisting of managing director and function and business heads. Over 100 top performers have been selected for L1 and L2 levels. This flat organizational structure is to be called Organisational Effectiveness which will totally do away with the middle management level and significantly bring down multiple reporting strategies. L3 to L5 will be finalized in the next 1 month while the new restructuring will be incorporated on the first day of the next financial year.
