ISPI's Community Projects
Performance Improvement in Action
The Center continues with its series of stories showing the impact of performance improvement when applied to real situations. This month's story is about how PI was applied by ISPI volunteers to help non-profits better achieve their mission. Non-profit organizations include The Kidney Foundation of Quebec, Victim Support Services, and Reap Goodness. The Victim Support Services in Washington state for a long-term project. The project focused on transformational change: changing the organization from a passion-driven non-profit to a results-oriented business driven by passion. In addition to sharing how the team used human performance technology and the ISPI Principles & Practices to help the community around them, Dr. Leanne Jensen one of the team members will share how the experience helped her grow as an HPT practitioner.
Dr. Leanne Jensen is a senior engineer in the aerospace industry. In addition to degrees in machine design & mechanical engineering technology from Michigan Technological University and a PhD in performance improvement from Capella University, she also holds certifications for Lean Six Sigma Master Blackbelt and Certified Scrum Master. Leanne’s work includes developing patent-pending model-based engineering techniques used for human performance improvement. Dr. Jensen is the President of the Boeing Chapter of ISPI and has recently joined the ISPI Board of Directors. She enjoys coaching her son’s junior robotics team, playing roller derby, and running.
