Tata Motors Sanand plant has been made a part of the firm's new Organisational Effectiveness (OE) programme, which is a major transformational human resource drive by the company to become a leaner and agiler organisation. The company said, "A detailed study on how to improve ‘speed, simplicity and agility’ was conducted by an external agency and the recommendations have been examined in detail by the Executive Committee (ExCom) of Tata Motors." Through this exercise, Tata Motors is aiming to become a lean, agile organisation, by empowering its business units with clear accountability, strengthening functional leadership and oversight, ensuring faster and effective decision making, and improving customer focus. There will be five new levels of management below the ExCom. Some functions and roles have been realigned and some new functions have been created. This new organisation structure has come into effect from April 1, 2017.
