After writing the first book about why Lean and Six Sigma practitioners should volunteer their skills to help nonprofits, I wanted to give more tangible and real-life examples of how these tools and techniques can be applied.

I’ve reached out to friends and colleagues who are already volunteering their time, and asked them to write a chapter for this first volume, called “Lessons Learned from the Gemba.”

Here are the list of volunteers who contributed to the book, along with the title of their chapter:

– Joe Hnat: Can a Corporate Employee Garden Feed the Hungry?

– Pat O’Connor: Lessons from a Flag Program and Ushering

– Andrew Parris: International Relief and Development Improvement

– Mark Novak: Leaning Out Disaster Relief
– Brion Hurley: Applying Lean Six Sigma to a Nonprofit Fundraiser Conference
– Kieran Mohammed: Performance Improvement journeyman; from manufacturing to government and nonprofits
– Brent Weichers: Training and Implementing Lean with a Blind Workforce
– Philip Washburn: Continuous Improvement in Affordable Housing Development

Each author has agreed to donate 100% of any donations or book proceeds to the nonprofit of their choice. The proceeds will be split evenly based on when the book was sold, and how many chapters were in the book. Your support and payment for this book is greatly appreciated! If you know someone who would like to contribute, please have them contact us at LeanSixSigmaForGood.com
