My name is Thijs Panneman and this blog is a collection of my personal notes as Lean Deployment Leader working in a Dutch multinational. since this english part only covers the most popular articles of my Dutch blog, I can recommend Dutch readers to switch to Dutch.


To expand my knowledge, I read a lot of management books of which I write summaries. I also write articles about how to lead a Lean initiative based on different Lean Tools, that include my experience with implementing them in the many factories that I have worked at. In 2017, I puslished my first book: lean transformations, which will teach you how to use the lean tools in getting measurable results in your plant.
