Lean Six Sigma for Good: How improvement experts can help people in need, and help improve the environment

Written by Brion Hurley

For decades, Lean and Six Sigma have helped businesses improve quality, reduce costs, increase profits and improve customer satisfaction. As an experienced Lean Six Sigma practitioner, I’ve seen how these skills can help reduce pollution, poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, or almost any problem you can imagine. This is a short but powerful book, intended to motivate you to apply your skills for good!

This is a condensed book to motivate current Lean, Six Sigma and continuous improvement experts to help their company and community reduce their environmental impacts, and help address social problems, both at a local and global level. This book will help you figure out what causes and organizations that interest you, and how you can find time to help them on your own free time, or during work hours while getting paid.
