Optimise your Costs and Processes



Consultation and implementation support for your business success

As your specialist partner I will train and qualify your team in the application of lean methodology and tools. 

Together we will optimise best business processes across the entire value chain.

With the application of value stream mapping we will identify areas of improvement and develop tailored solutions to optimise efficiency and cost. Based on your requirements I will provide coaching and tools to assist your team to adopt a sustainable lean culture within your organisation.

My vast experience of manufacturing and lean methodology gives me the confidence that as partners we can develop your own lean production system tailored to your your specific requirements. 

As partners we will create a master plan for your business, implementing the appropriate lean tools. We will develop training for your employees and implement a manufacturing plant standard that will continuously increase value whilst reduce and eliminate waste.

Lean consultant with passion.

About me

My passion for lean motivates me - after many years of professional activity as "Lean Manager for Supplier Development for Ford's European Purchasing Department" – I became self-employed with the aim of passing on my knowledge and experience.

During my rich professional career, I have been able to get to know the critical success factors for the holistic approach when introducing and applying lean management tools.

Especially through global cooperation in international teams I gained valuable experience in order to successfully implement various lean projects. I am able to resolve difficult situations very efficiently and recognise the potential for optimization quickly. In addition the ability to get quick access to people helps me to solve possible blockades and to inspire the team again for the common goal.

A common sense was always a good guidance for me.
