"I first came to know about Steven Bonacorsi in the Lean groups he promotes and soon realized his talent and that was the time when I approached him to review my book in distributed agile. He is a very detail oriented person which I was able to understand after he passed on my book review and I get that he has grasped the whole content of my book (in just a short span), as otherwise no one will be able to give such a detail review. This makes me differentiate Steven from other leaders in the industry, who always had given 50,000 feet level advices to others but Steven gets into micro level details without keeping time as a constraint and hence his advices are always accurate."

SIPOC Model to Scope the Simple Kaizen Opportunities
Steven Bonacorsi was brought in under recommendation of Michelle Brown, Universal American’s VP of Corp Performance Improvement, to lead a continuous improvement Leans Six Sigma event for our Part D Rebate program. Our rebate program represent $1B in annual invoicing from over 50 manufacturers.
During long hours spent with Steve working through our operations, Steve was the consummate professional. Who brings a length and breadth of experience and life-long education that is hard to find. He was able to keep our team focused on the vision of what our operations “could be” by using real world examples from successful results driven projects that he either led or participated in the past. He is also a strong leader, who is quick to challenge any member of the team, and prove with empirical (quantitative and qualitative) data how “change” is needed to meet “Team” goals.
I would recommend Steve as a proven results driven leader for continuous business process improvement projects.

Steven Bonacorsi was one of the key people to develop the DFSS Book of Knowledge at GE, which was not only the training material, but also included practical examples that people could relate to - and truly changed how GE did DFSS training. In addition, he helped develop the "Siggy CD" which was an animated introduction to LSS given to GB candidates before they started training. As someone who trained GBs, I know I saw a marked difference in the level of candidate preparedness after that was launched.
In addition, I have been extremely impressed with Steven's practical knowledge and application of LSS. Not only are his comments and recommendations on LinkedIn insightful, but he will go out of his way to help people.
I am very pleased to recommend Steven, and there is no doubt in my mind that if he is this helpful in general, he is DEFINITELY someone to think about when looking for a LSS consultant!
I now know why 101 people have recommended Steve. I will be happy to be the 102nd. Steve and I connected via Linkedin through our shared interest in Six Sigma and Lean Mfg concepts. Late one night, I asked for Steve's help to forward an email to the SVP of a company I am interested in and someone who is in Steve's network. The next morning, I called Steve to follow-up on my request since we had not spoken before. No sooner than when I called Steve did I receive an email from him indicating he had already acted on it. I can imagine how many emails he must receive daily. The timeliness of his action and willingness to help is nothing short of impressive. Well, seems at least 102 people know this about Steve.

I sent Steven an email asking him if he could direct me to anyone who was hiring in the area. I was not ready for the response that I received. He first provided me with group sites within LinkedIn, then it was followed by a very detailed list of Job Boards and the medium salary that could be expected at each web address. In addition there were Social Networking sites and General job search tools and I don't mean 1 or 2 but close to 15 each. There are many people on the Internet that are only there to make money but Steven reacted out of compassion towards me. That is something that is missing in our World today and thats how we are going to beat this Recession. Thank you Steven Bonacorsi for the help you provided to me and my family.
