End of The Day
Dave describes a story of how was asked to solve a highly complex pulp and paper problem while an engineer at Kimberly Clark. The experts said it was going to cost $4M.
“I had to learn to adapt and improvise. I challenged my team to solve it using the resources we had. We ultimately fixed the problem at a fraction of the cost using the principles of Lean Six Sigma.”
David Bernd, Vice President of Economic Development at Covington/Newton County Chamber of Commerce
