Continuous improvement at Airbus
Hamburg, Toulouse, June-October, 2014

In the framework of the industrial co-operation within Airbus, Pateau Consultants was asked to facilitate several two-day workshops including French, German, British and Spanish project teams. Far beyond the classical sessions of monocultural training taking place in the different countries, the priority was here to bring people together to discuss business issues i.e. not only talking about the partner, but with the partner. Despite a long experience of co-operation and according to the feedback of participants, these sessions are crucial to maintain or increase trust within Airbus.
