Lauren Wisniewski is a lean consultant who works primarily with nonprofits. Growing up with a father that worked at General Motors (GM), she learned about process improvement at an early age.
She shared her experiences helping non-profits incorporate lean methods, along with the benefits and barriers they encounter. She talks about one project that reduced the cost of a fundraising gala, while doubling the donations and increasing the value for the attendees. Another project helped reduce the time for a staff member, freeing them up to better assist those needing care.
