Second book: De Puberende Leider, 2017, Lannoo Campus

Today, industrial organizations all too often behave like adolescents. They are unwieldy, static, too creative with too little focus, and too focused on themselves rather than on the dynamic, complex outside world. Through the expansion of the fictional company Taste4U, this book is looking for ways to create a truly mature company structure and culture in an ever-changing and unpredictable business world. “De Puberende Leider” is a realistic business chronicle that shows how your company can work agile and efficient. Dealing with the Lean culture plays a major role in this: real Lean does not look for standardized uniform sausage, but helps you with the right approach to create the necessary value for your customer and to avoid the competition.
