Human Resource, Organization Behavior Case Studies
This case study was compiled from published sources, and is intended to be used as a basis for class discussion. It is not intended to illustrate either effective or ineffective handling of a management situation. Nor is it a primary information source.
As part of the Nissan Way, the company provided specialized "Career Advisors," for women only for their career advancement. Nissan had put in place a talent management strategy and adopted an inclusive "whole workforce" approach. It included a series of activities which addressed Competency Management, Performance Management, Career Development and Succession Management. As a part of restructuring, Ghosn closed down few plants due to which a lot of workers lost their jobs. While some experts criticized it as a genuine misjudgment on the part of Ghosn, few others felt that it was a necessary evil for the company. While the debate on this issue raged on, experts were almost unanimous in their view that this episode would not only be remembered as a horrible example in the history of restructuring but would also serve as a valuable lesson to other organizations planning a restructuring exercise.
