Fascinated with the art of making things, Michel is on a mission to improve it. Trained in engineering and applied math, he got his feet wet in production in the early 1980s, and later apprenticed under master Japanese consultant Kei Abe for eight years, starting his own group in 1996.
He has been consulting since 1987, teaching courses and writing technical books. He intends to keep working with like-minded partners in the Takt Times Group and contributing improvements in the management and technology of manufacturing as a consultant, trainer, and writer.
