Manufacturing to Healthcare, the Tale of Lean Six Sigma Consultant


Share on LinkedIn

Jason Kilgore is much more than just your typical Lean Six Sigma consultant. I ran across Jason on the web answering a LinkedIn question about internal and external consultants. He spoke highly of each, gave practical common sense answers on when to use them and sold nothing! He caught my attention and I went surfing.

What I found was a Business Process Manager for Riverside Health System in Newport News, Virginia, where he has utilized his expertise in Project Management, Lean, and Six Sigma (Black Belt). In 2008, Jason transitioned to healthcare after 15 successful years in the automotive industry. While in the automotive sector, Jason filed for over 60 US and global patents as a design engineer, led multiple Six Sigma projects as a Black Belt, and implemented lean concepts in his role as a manufacturing manager.

I followed my instincts on this podcast and it turned out that Jason was a great interview. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

Jason is the author of the book, The Elegant Process: The Guide to Enhanced Quality and Reduced Costs. In the book Jason demonstrates his value-based approach to simultaneously achieving quality and financial goals through process improvement and optimization. The Elegant Process shares Jason’s straightforward method for enhancing quality and reducing costs within any business setting by redesigning the systems that contribute to lackluster results.
