TNF Guidelines for 2016-17

 

The primary objective underlying the genesis of the Tata Network Forums (TNF) is to continually foster a spirit of business excellence and ethical behaviour across Tata companies worldwide. This goal is achieved by sharing group level communication and organization level best practices on an ongoing basis, leading to sustained business excellence. Tata Network Forums across regions organise many company off-sites with the aim of promoting closer interaction and higher knowledge sharing and learning within the regional Tata group companies.

Facilitated by Tata Business Excellence Group (TBExG), TNF is a robust, effective platform leveraged by Tata companies across the globe to engage in appropriate information exchange, training and collaborative activities, to showcase events and put forth important marketing communication. It is also a channel that brings group-level senior leader communication to the fore.

TNF has strong networks established across the globe – in Europe, North America, China, Africa, South East Asia and India. Each TNF region has a dedicated Chairman, Convener and TBExG Coordinator.
