Henkan Corporate Brochure – Electronic format

“Jean has been in charge of Business Transformation and Continuous Improvement for 4 years in France and 2 years in the same time for Iberia (Spain and Portugal), for Philips global then Philips Lighting. During this period, he has achieved great training results, by certifying almost 500 people on Lean Basics, 10 managers on Lean Advanced (Green Belt level).

In addition, he has led 3 successful international training sessions of Daily Management in France, Iberia and Italy (70 persons including Iberia MT’s and France’s and Italy’s Supply Chain managers). His training and coaching skills have been unanimously recognised, reaching a great satisfaction level from trainees ( No Net Promoter Score (NPS) lower than 50%, with 4 sessions over 80%.).

Jean has also successfully led many lean transformations, including a Customer Kaizen Event for Rexel France, that involved the entire management teams of both Philips Lighting and Rexel France. Within 6 months, thanks to an improved Rexel/Philips collaborative planning, he managed to increase forecast accuracy from 60% to 76%, to reduce level of stock obsolescence from 55 days to 32 days,  to drop obsolescence stock from 67K€ to < 30k€, to secure an additional revenue of 5M€ in 2016.

Jean is a passionate, challenging and delivery focused  lean leader and trainer. I believe he would be a great asset to any team or organisation implementing the lean philosophy and therefore  I highly recommend him in his new role as leader of Henkan France.”
