Who We Are

Candulin was founded in 2017 with a single mission: to be the most successful, creative and ground-breaking Lean Consulting agency. We approach each of our clients with fresh eyes to develop customised, unique solutions.

I have more than 10 years’ experience in Lean Transformations and in the Continuous Improvement arena.

I currently lead Lean transformations at different client’s site to develop and transfer Lean capabilities to grow and remain through effective consulting, coaching and simulations.

I have worked all over the world… USA, Russia, South Africa, Europe (Italy, Germany, UK, Holland, France, Czech Republic etc..) across multiple sectors including Metal, Mining, Paper, Retail, Gaz, FMCG, Rail, Packaging and Services.

I single handedly run more than 500 Training Workshops with more than 7500 participants including all levels of the organizations from the Machine Operators to the CEO.

I have contributed to improvements that led to actual savings of more than $120M and more than $500M cost avoidance.

I believe that given my International background, speaking 5 languages  (English, Italian, French, Spanish and Russian) I have gained enough experience to adapt to any environment.

I keep learning and crave new experience and knowledge on a constant base.

Lean fundamentally is not a set of tools but a Business Management System and philosophy that the tools help you to drill a certain type of behaviour and thinking into your employee’s daily lives. 

I am curious by nature; I enjoy working with different kinds of people and strive to share, learn and teach them but above all, I absolutely adore seeing them succeed! Even if I am behind the scene most of the time. 

My favourite quote and one I truly believe is  “People are the only asset in a company that appreciates! We need to invest and take extremely good care of them!”

I have worked with Jean-Philippe on more than 3 Lean Transformations and I can say that each time it has been a genuine pleasure to work together with him, he constantly amazed me with his Lean knowledge and his original approaches to solving problems. His hands-on approach to Lean and Operations as well as his strong personality won him the respect of both the production teams and senior management. Jean-Philippe leads by example and many people at DS Smith find his enthusiasm and dedication both inspiring and motivating. Jean-Philippe understands that any Lean transformation comes first by winning the hearts and minds of the people involved, in short getting them interested in the possibilities that Lean can bring to any organizations. Because of this, his leadership and interpersonal skills have been invaluable to our company and Jean-Philippe is a cherished members of our group. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and will do so again in the future any day!
