Non-profit Leadership Education Series

“Lean Six Sigma: Non-Profit Leadership in the Trenches” is the topic for the latest in the free nonprofit education series sponsored by the Door County Community Foundation, the Raibrook Foundation, and the United Way of Door County. This session is Feb. 4 at the Lodge at Leathem Smith (1640 Memorial Drive, Sturgeon Bay). Breakfast starts at 8 am and the session runs from 8:30 am to noon.

“Lean Six Sigma” will be led by Kinga N. Jacobson, a Master Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma, a highly regarded quality management business practice. She is an accomplished business consultant with extensive experience in management and coaching.

Juggling responsibilities? Prioritizing funds usage? Managing volunteers? Handling money? Streamlining operations? Safeguarding reputation? If any of this sounds familiar, this session is for you. Attendees will work through methods such as Voice of the Customer, Critical to Quality, Process Mapping, SIPOC, Fish Bone Diagram, Benchmarking, Five Whys, and Quality Cycles to help pinpoint non-value added time and hidden factory while capitalizing on industry best practices for strategizing priorities, improving communications, and streamlining operations.

“These business practices are just as valuable to the nonprofit community as they are to the for-profit world,” says Bret Bicoy, president & CEO of the Door County Community Foundation and a graduate of Motorola University’s Six Sigma Methodology program.
