About Ian Glenday
Ian started his career as a microbiologist running a factory producing enzymes from deep-culture fermentation of bacteria. It was here that he began developing RFS concepts.
After taking time out to gain an MBA he joined a pharmaceutical company where he led an MRPII project To Class A status. This experience offered Ian a valuable lesson in understanding why MRP batch logic inevitably causes short term plan changes and firefighting.
Ian then moved to Reckitt & Colman’s where led a pan-European supply chain strategy based on the Lean concept of “every product every cycle,” before joining Colman’s of Norwich as head of policy deployment responsible for applying Lean thinking across the entire company.
Ian currently helps businesses around the world make their own Lean transformations through his company Repetitive Flexible Supply Ltd. His approach to applying lean in many types of industries is refreshingly different, instructive and always entertaining.
Ian has written two books on Lean: “Breaking through to flow” and “Lean/RFS: putting the pieces together”. Both books received the prestigious Shingo publication Award.
