Adam, Andras, Stefan et Constanta

Originally from Poland, Romania and Slovenia, Adam, Andras, Stefan and Constanta have all worked for French or German car manufacturers or automotive suppliers. All of them have been trained in industrial excellence tools (lean, 5S, etc.) and all of them have contributed to improvement or development projects of new industrialization processes.

The European industrial management of a very large global equipment manufacturer (several hundred sites worldwide) was experiencing recurring problems in several Eastern European countries: production, quality and logistics.

To compensate the possible failures, it asked Talents & Projets to prepare a matrix of people who could be mobilized in a few days for these three functions and in four countries.

Content of the mission

We are immediately launching this ambitious work to identify several possible profiles for each of the functions in the 4 countries concerned.

This is an atypical and considerable program since several dozen profiles are targeted to complete the "business/country" needs matrix.

Within 6 weeks, the objective of finding 2 to 3 profiles for each "job/country" pair was 85% fulfilled

In the following 6 months, this innovative tool was used to meet 4 needs in 3 different countries.
