Recorded at OPEX Risk Management, Stephan Blasilli joins us and shares his German Italian Greek roots. His father was a chemist and Stephan grew up in an open minded environment. He traveled to Italy as a kid which inspired him to want to keep traveling further in life. Proficient in six sigma, Stephan admits that being a black belt is something that Americans see as much more valuable than do Germans. He further notes that he feels that Kaizen is successful in Japan because it’s not seen as a process at all- it’s a culture. But the key, no matter the country, is to have the right people. Finding efficiencies has been his life’s work and he shares learnings from his journey.
