    Mihai Cristea Plant Manager Inteva Products
  • It was a very good experience, I had the opportunity to share with people coming from different plants/industries and to learn from the very long experience of Ritsuo Shingo. Listening to Ritsuo Shingo during the workshop I realized that for my plant is very important to create a company culture, a culture of continuous improvement which will sustain the lean tools.

  • This training showed me what it means to be a humble leader. Continuous improvement is a lot more about people and not only about money (like make companies believe).
