Nissan impossible?

Here's an interesting snippet in FORTUNE magazine (July 24, 2006) about the CEO of Renault and Nissan, Carlos Ghosn, the first person ever to run two companies on FORTUNE's Global 500 simultaneously:

"Ghosn brags about his ability to set financial and performance targets three years out - and meet or exceed them. At Nissan he even offered to resign if he missed."

Well, perhaps his ego ran ahead of him.

So will Ghosn offer to resign now?
