丰田汽车是日本汽车行业的全球巨头，几十年来一直是排名第一的，直到最近被通用汽车和大众汽车集团等竞争对手所取代。公司非常重视质量，作为它在世界各地在不同市场上推销和销售数百万辆汽车的头号差异化因素。它始终专注于所有活动的质量，并学习在所有汽车制造工厂中嵌入质量，这已经成为公司领导层的基础，而不是一个特定的领导者。公司领导班子从根本上把握质量第一，追求安全，满足人们对公司汽车制造的期望。相比之下，塔塔汽车是一家在国际舞台上展翅高飞的印度公司，正在购买像几年前购买的捷豹路虎（Jaguar Land Rover）这样昂贵的车型，并正在学习质量，安全以及满足人们的需求汽车。
Toyota Motors is a worldwide giant in the automobile industry based in Japan, and has been continuously on the number one spot since decades until recently being overtaken by other competitors like General Motors and the Volkswagen Group. The company is extremely focussed on quality as its number one differentiating factor on which it prides and sells millions of vehicles around the world in different markets. It is consistently focussed on quality in all their activities and learns to embed quality in all their car manufacturing plants, and this has become more of a leadership fundamental of the company rather than a particular leader in person. The company’s leadership has a fundamental approach towards quality first which goes along with safety and people’s desires to be met with the automobile manufacturing of the company. In contrast, Tata Motors is an Indian company which is spreading its wings on the international arena and is gearing up with costly purchase like Jaguar Land Rover which it bought few years ago and is learning about quality, safety, and meeting people’s desires of a complete automobile.
The leadership style at Toyota is more methodical and clear with all points of actions being written in advance if their being undertaken and implemented. This makes it a more process based company which bases all its achievements and future rewards on the implementation and application of the methodical strategies and actions that it has pre-decided (Rothwell, Prescott and Taylor, 2008). Tata is far behind than Toyota on a global scale and is mostly India based with manufacturing plants in India and mainly catering to the Indian public with cheap, affordable, safe, and durable cars.
