Abstract

Renault-Nissan Alliance (RNA) launched four convergence projects in four key functions (research and development, manufacturing and logistics, purchasing, and human resources). The projects required the two independent entities, Renault and Nissan, to increase collaboration and integration to strengthen economies of scale, and thus reduce costs in order to better compete globally in both developed and emerging markets. However, as the alliance increased the level of integration and opened possibilities for inviting new partners, it also increased the time and resources needed to reach joint strategic decisions between the two companies. RNA had many difficult decisions to make with respect to moving forward - not least of which involved finding an eventual replacement for the alliance's 61-year-old chief executive officer.
