President, Leansoft Consulting Inc, and Executive coach, Lean Sensei International

Today, Andrew McFadyen joins us. He’s a lean practitioner with some serious street cred, and what we thought would be a technical conversation with a Lean Sensei when we hooked up with him, was instead a chat with somebody who “wants people down in the Gemba (work team) to have a voice.” He’s a former VP Manufacturing Engineering at Canadian Autoparts Toyota Inc., former President and General Manager at Wexxar Packaging Inc., and now spends his time as an Executive Coach through Lean Sensei International, and as the President of Leansoft Consulting. This podcast covers general continuous improvement themes, leader focused work, downtime context in factory environments, automation myths, and just about everything else you could cover on continuous improvement in 2016.
