Patrick van Dijk is a dedicated professional in the field of Lean. With his enthusiasm and sense
of personal relationships he brings his knowledge in an interactive way to others. Patrick is a
person who understands that change will only be achieved together.
He has got his broad experience from working for the U.S. multinational Rexnord where he
created a solid practical foundation and speaks both the language of the workplace and that of
the management. That implementation of lean is not easy, he himself has personally
experienced. Persuading is not enough. Success of Lean transformation depends on
