Business Need: Bringing synchronicity to all departments.
Renault–Nissan Alliance is a strategic partnership between automobile manufacturers Renault, and Nissan, which together sell more than one in 10 cars worldwide. The companies have nearly 450,000 employees and control nine major brands: Nissan, Renault, Infiniti, Renault Samsung Motors, Dacia, Datsun, Venucia, Lada and Mitsubishi. The car group sold 8.3 million cars worldwide in 2013, behind Toyota, General Motors, and Volkswagen for total volume.
Our Solution: We partnered with Nissan to create a curriculum which delivered the concept of synchronized production philosophy. The idea was to improve the company’s productivity and effectiveness and have a global standard production system. So essentially, manufacture according to the real consumer order, thus coordinating all operations and materials.
After the Renault and Nissan alliance took place, Renault embraced the NPW in its plants to produce each other’s automobiles. Renault increased its productivity and decreased its defective parts percentage as a result. We delivered a curriculum which encompassed elements of gamification and self discovery of the APW.
- Designed, translated and deployed across all continents, and in over 12 languages
- After the success of the pilot, the curriculum was deployed across the entire organization – worldwide
- A second curriculum was commissioned for worldwide deployment based on the metrics achieved from the phase 1 curriculum roll-out.
Both curriculums were rolled out successfully cross the globe, utilizing 3 different LMS systems and incorporating all 12 languages.
