About me

Born in Florence in 1971, engineer. My business started after many years of professional experience conducted in numerous sectors of industry and services. My areas of professional experience are related to change management, continuous process improvement, operational management, monitoring and leading key customer service indicators to level of excellence. Since 2003 I have been dealing with Lean as a management method and with which I have accomplished a number of success stories in different business contexts. I have worked with over 80 companies, in over 12 countries around the world, and have trained over 2000 people in Lean, Six Sigma and Continuous improvement methodologies. I have led numerous teams towards the achievement of challenging improvement goals. For over twenty years I have been working as a professional in international contexts and have gained a variety of experiences in the following sectors: aerospace, automotive, clinical-hospital, defense, electromechanical, financial, industrial, manufacturing, mechanical, fashion, nautical, health, oil and gas, services, vending. I am based in Tuscany, I operate throughout Italy and Europe, and I am active as a BQF accredited Master Black Belt, consultant, trainer and coach.

Lean Production

Lean Production is a Continuous Improvement methodology focused on adding value to customer. Foundation of this methodology is the identification and elimination of all activities that cause costs without creating value, i.e. ‘wastes’. Lean offers a series of specific tools for each type of waste and is powerful for its rapid and effective application both in the industrial/manufacturing area and in the office/service area. Results are an higher product quality, a faster service with significantly shorter time and lower costs , and a greater competitiveness and flexibility on the market. In this area I have more than 15 years’ experience, as well as many business success stories in applying the following methodologies:

  • Standard Work, Continuous Flow, Cell design

  • SMED, Kanban

  • Visual Management, 5S

  • VSM e process mapping

Problem Solving The Lean six-sigma is a rigorous and systematic Continuous Improvement methodology, based on the use of data and statistical analysis, to measure and improve company performance and reduce process variability. The implementation of the Lean six-sigma methodology is realised through the Define-Measure-Analyse-Improve-Control road map. In business processes, it contributes to strengthen the leadership of the company through:
  • Constant development of Human Resources skills
  • Systematic measurement and analysis of the service level
  • Continuous improvement of internal processes
  • Focus on real customer needs and requirements
Invetory management and supply chain optimization Tools available in this area come from Lean Production techniques applied to Supply Chain management. Results obtained are the levelling and reduction of stocks, a simpler and more punctual scheduling of materials and a consequent reduction in stock shortages.
  • “Kanban” and Reorder Point stock management system
  • Optimization of logistics flows (mapping of value flows)
  • Implementation of the “Material Flow” system
  • Evaluation, support and training of suppliers
  • Development and implementation of “Plan for Every Part” database
  • Optimization of planning and procurement processes
Operations and Production Management The industrial area is the heart of any production company; good management can achieve unexpected results and performance. Years of experience in this area lead to offer clients leadership, coherence, motivation, a sense of team responsibility and determination, which are values that make a company grow. Our intervention’s areas:
  • Temporary management and management consulting
  • Strategic consulting and project management
  • Implementation of Total Productive Mainentance systems
  • Tools for planning production resources (Labor planning, Gantt)
  • Management and coordination of special projects (re-layout, start-up, integration)
  • Development and management of cost reduction projects
