With all of the stay-at-home orders and work crawled to a slow (or stop) for many, I wanted to provide a link to recently published video from The video is short (just over 6 minutes) but provides a great story of Lean Six Sigma applied in government. It will air monthly on PBS "Behind the Scenes" with Laurence Fishburne starting in May. Please enjoy the distraction from all the challenging news out there right now. As my mentor and long-term manager, Luke Faulstick, Says: "Nothing good lasts forever. But nothing bad lasts forever either!" Let's all hang in there and stay safe and healthy as best as we can. Here is that video
