Organizational and Personnel Changes

Mazda Motor Corporation has announced the following organizational and personnel changes, effective May 1, 2008.

 

1. Organizational Changes
(1) Changes in the areas of corporate planning and corporate communications and liaison

Goals

To strengthen and promote enhanced coordination and consistency in planning, integrate the development and promotion of long-term strategies and short- and mid-term plans into a single division. These functions were originally handled separately by the Corporate Strategy Division and the Corporate Planning Division, respectively.
To promote further organizational efficiency in operations, consolidate corporate planning functions under the Corporate Planning Division.
By transferring the Corporate Liaison and Research Dept’s liaison functions with government, municipal offices and industry organizations to the Corporate Planning Division, contribute to more accurate management decisions by synchronizing information about political, economic and industry trends with corporate strategy.

 

Details of the organizational changes

The Corporate Strategy Division has been eliminated.
The Corporate Strategy Department has been renamed the Business Strategy Department.
The Business Strategy Department and the Corporate Administration Department have been transferred to the Corporate Planning Division.
The Corporate Liaison & Research Department has been transferred to the Corporate Planning Division.
The Corporate Communication & Liaison Division has been renamed the Corporate Communications Division.

 

(2) Changes in the area of product planning

Goals

To clearly separate product strategy planning and promotion functions from individual product planning and promotion functions.
In the strategy area, strengthen the consistency and coordination between long-term strategies and mid-term plans.
In the product planning area, promote comprehensive product planning for the next-generation product lineup, and form closer connections and coordination with program development.

 

Details of the organizational changes

The Product Planning & Business Strategy Division has been eliminated, and the Product Strategy Division and the Product Planning Division(s) have been newly established.
