Special Accelerated Development


Nissan provides unique Special Accelerated Development programs for high-performing employees.

Many of these intensive workshops provide follow-up development opportunities including assessment, feedback, coaching, and mentoring opportunities.

Cross-Functional Teams


Unique to Nissan, we offer the opportunity to work with others globally through Cross-Functional Teams known as CFTs. These special CFTs are focused on addressing special topics (i.e. Supply Chain Excellence, Monozukuri, and Quality of Management) and are composed with team members from a variety of different functions, multiple levels, and diverse experiences. These teams challenge the organization by creating a pipeline of transformative ideas with immediate impact on the organization. Each CFT uses Nissan's V-up (Six Sigma-type program) principles, processes and tools to identify bold, creative proposals, and solutions for decision and action.

Foreign Service Assignments


The Foreign Assignment program enables Nissan to use global sourcing of talent with less emphasis on hiring location, creating a diverse and collaborative work environment. Selected participants in the program are considered essential organizational investments to fulfill the following unique roles:

  • Perform operations where local staff do not currently possess sufficient skills and/or knowledge;
  • Perform operations against a backdrop designed to promote and develop a global mindset, global understanding and accomplishment in the assignee's career; and
  • Perform operations in an environment that will equip the assignee with cross-cultural experience, challenge abilities, establish a global network and enhance the assignee's worldwide business exposure.
