Operations Management Prof. Felipe Quintana is one of those rare people who love frontenis. I say rare because being a tennis player myself, it’s hard for me to understand how anyone can like frontenis!!! Even more so when the person in question has been a tennis champion, as Prof. Quintana has… Well, he just says that he loves being able to smash the ball the way they do in frontenis!!!
Prof. Quintana is an industrial engineer with extensive corporate experience. He has worked for overseas companies such as LVMH and Robert Bosch and is currently working for Aguas Minerelas de Firgas (leader in the mineral water and soft drink sector in the Canary Islands).
Here Prof. Quintana draws some interesting comparisons between lean operations and frontenis. I can’t help saying that I would’ve preferred him to play tennis…! In any case, I have to admit that it’s great to watch him really smashing the ball with his racquet!!
