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:
- 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?
- 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?
- 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?
- 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.
