The European head office of an American multinational defined a number of lean projects, but the project leaders and their teams had no experience with a structured approach. As such, it was necessary to see results because America would otherwise take the lead.
In the course of several months, Antonie Reichling guided seven project teams in the preparation and execution of their lean projects. Training and application in the project went hand-in-hand.
The European organisation achieved significant improvements in its bottom-line result, and the American head office took example from its approach.
