Ghosn decided that the company should reduce the cost incurred in purchasing by 20%, decrease company capacity by 30%, close five of their plants, and reduce the number of workers by 20,000 through layoffs and attrition. This was a crucial step in improving the company’s financial performance but was met with resistance from suppliers and the country at large since the external environment was more concerned with status quo rather than sound financial performance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
