Event Details

An accelerated, highly structured 3 ½ day learning event, followed by hands-on project, designed for individuals and organizations who have made a serious commitment to sustainability.


Just as Six Sigma is a discipline for tackling the complexities of improving Quality, CISR (sounds like scissor) is a disciplined approach to the oftentimes difficult goal of improving Social Responsibility (SR) performance. 


Designed for Success…



The event is structured to cover a lot of territory in a concentrated period of time.  Pre-reading will be assigned, to optimize the instructor-led event.


Active Learning

The three and a half day period allows participants time to digest and comprehend materials, then experience hands-on application.


Post-Workshop Coaching

-This is a project-oriented continual improvement methodology.

-Participants have 6 months of

CISR Project coaching available.

Note:  Six Sigma Project Leadership Skills (i.e. influencing without authority)  are important in CISR, as well.  Coaching includes leadership skills.

Why We Teach This Course


We have found most sustainability efforts extremely under-resourced.  This results in many well-intentioned organizations having to stretch the truth on the effectiveness of their sustainability and social responsibility efforts.


At the same time, we find Six Sigma practitioners who want to do more, contribute more, towards sustainability.


This course prepares the multitudes of continual improvement professionals to authentically contribute to the sustainability performance of their organizations.
