    Is this beneficial to a not-for-profit in the housing area?

    No, I think it would be better for you if you were located in a business district rather than a housing area.
    Sorry, couldn’t resist.
    SS benefits any kind of operation as long as people or machines are doing things. It reduces variation and limits defects in your services or products…so, yes it would be beneficial to you. Likely you needn’t do any hard core Black Belt stuff – most process mngt at the Yellow Belt level.

    I started my CI career in a healthcare business (non-profit) and became a LSS Green Belt and then Black Belt while working for another non-profit. I am now in the for profit world (though our company is not doing so well, so we are technically non-profit either!)It’s absolutely applicable – as Brandon said, wherever there’s waste and unwanted variation, these tools will help. In fact, they’re especially appropriate in a non-profit, to make better use of limited financial resources to carry out the mission.In the end, the success of these efforts relies quite heavily on leadership and culture, perhaps moreso than having an expensive black belt or consultant. Process maps, simple data analysis and graphs, and Fishbone diagrams may be all you need, along with some well scoped workouts to make big impact on your organization.

    dmh, take a look at the Process Mngt course offered on this site in eBooks. Very powerful stuff for the price and you should need no more sophisticatedΒ tools than are offered in this course,
