Your instructor will designate groups.

Read the “Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Case Study,”.

In a PowerPoint Presentation of 10-15 slides (with speaker notes, title slide, and reference slide), address the following questions:

  1. How would you describe the context into which Carlos Ghosn was thrown when he was recruited in 1999 to turn around Nissan? How would you describe Ghosn’s leadership style?
  2. How would you measure Ghosn’s approach to leading change? How effective was he? To what extent did his leadership affect the strategy at Nissan?
  3. In 2002, some industry experts remarked that Nissan’s success was partly achieved at the expense of its suppliers. Do you agree? Why or why not? Is Nissan poised for long-term success?
  4. What strategic and specific recommendations would you make to “Le Cost Killer” moving beyond 2002?

Answer each question on its own slide in your PowerPoint presentation.
