Coworking Rynek 28
“I am running a co-working office in Krakow and needed to improve the layout and optimize the space. Matthieu from Galaxlean offered his help. I was skeptical at the beginning looking at the price but it turned out that the work delivered by Matthieu was way above my expectations and worth every penny. Precise and driven to deliver results, Matthieu used his experience in Lean management that he acquired in manufacturing in order to redesign and optimize the space here at Rynek 28.”

A brief history of Kaizen and Lean mindset
Everybody knows the car maker Toyota, right? Well, the lean philosophy was developed within this manufacture in Japan by Taiichi Ohno (1912-1990) who was an engineer there. He helped Eiji Toyoda (1913-2013) to implement the Jidoka, the Just-in-Time method and the Toyota Production System. With their actions, they spreaded the culture of Continuous Improvement through the group and helped Toyota to reach Excellence and improve its financial results. For example, with this principle and their Obeya room, they are able to launch a new model faster than their competitors.
