Carlos Cardoso, founder of Apilean in 2013, was then joined by Gregory Geneste, Associate Managing Director.
Their objective is to give more meaning to the Lean/Operational Excellence approaches by proposing a Lean/Soft Skills/Educational Innovation systemic approach. In short, Happy Lean!
for more than 23 years has been supporting companies in their quest for competitiveness and their physical and cultural transformation. After spending 15 years in operational and managerial positions with a car manufacturer, he decided to create Apilean in 2013.
Certified Lean Master Black Belt, Sensei & coach, he has also participated in several Learning Expeditions in Japan to understand from the inside the best production systems, both on the tools and on the associated routines, behaviors and reflexes.
His interest in new responsible organizations and new technologies also leads him to reflect on the companies and factories of tomorrow and the place of human Lean in them.
He managed operational teams at major industrial sites and various activities (production, logistics, production systems support) and then put this experience to good use by turning to consulting.
Gregory is Lean Black Belt and was also able to travel to Japan to see best practices in operational excellence.
His interest in the development of people’s skills has led him to broaden his field of action to training and different methods to make it effective, but also to train as a coach in order to propose a complementary approach to that of counselling and training.
