Lean Six Sigma for Good: Lessons from the Gemba (Volume 1)
Last updated on 2019-08-13
About the Book
After writing the first book about why Lean and Six Sigma practitioners should volunteer their skills to help nonprofits (free to download), 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."
This book will continue to grow, as more and more volunteers share their experiences. We will update the book with each new chapter released (one piece flow), instead of waiting for all the chapters to be completed (batch).
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. If you know someone who would like to contribute, please have them contact us at LeanSixSigmaForGood.com
