Based on your evaluation, is it possible for Tata to adopt both perspectives simultaneously, and why?

Question Two: Business Model Innovation and Technological Innovation through Strategic alliances, M&As The focus on innovation has helped the company (Tata Group) improve its products, services and solutions to satisfy customer needs.
