About the Book

As an experienced Lean Six Sigma practitioner, I've seen the benefits these skills and thinking can bring to a company. They are also applicable outside of business settings. to help address poverty, improve health care, improve education and improve the environment.

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.
