“I worked with Andy for nearly 2.5 years. He was supporting lean transformation in a few Wartsila sites in Europe and Asia, was also a lead consultant in our two factories located in Scandinavia. Andy has a very deep knowledge in lean, both hard and soft aspect of it. He is also a skilled consultant able to transfer the knowledge. Another advantage of his support is the ability to get best out of the individuals, fully utilising their knowledge and creativity. No chance to get bored during his workshop, all day there is a good atmosphere and optimal energy level.”
