Harvard Business Review podcasts on Carlos Ghosn

Listen to Yuuichiro Nakajima’s thoughts on the Nissan ex-CEO’s dramatic escape from detention

Yuuichiro Nakajima is featured in a podcast series by Harvard Business Review on Carlos Ghosn and the impact that he has had on Nissan and more broadly on Japanese business.

When Japan’s most famous CEO is suddenly arrested, conflicts are revealed in the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the French and Japanese auto companies that he led for two decades. Then Carlos Ghosn jumps bail by stowing away in a private jet to Lebanon. His daring escape raises new questions about his alleged financial misconduct and the corporate system that kept him in power. What went right — and wrong — at Nissan? How did Carlos Ghosn go from being one of the world’s most admired CEOs to a fugitive from justice?

This first episode of a four-part special series tells the story of his dramatic turnarounds at Renault and Nissan. Host Curt Nickisch explores Ghosn’s successes, discovering insights on working across cultural divides, winning buy-in on painful changes, and using outsider status to your advantage.
