Our Thinking

Teaching MBA candidates about profitable, environmental sustainability prepares them to be successful CEOs in our changing world. TFI's Pamela Gordon is now an Expert in Residence at Presidio Graduate School.

We think the tech industry can outsmart waste, profitably. See TFI's post and a related post from Creation Tech.

We think about Disaster Preparedness and Recovery, and so do clients who have us create and test their plans. But they don't realize until we've implemented their plans that their every-day operations benefit as well. Case study.

Pamela J. Gordon received the Leadership Award at the 2014 Lean and Six Sigma World Conference, for her leadership in leveraging Lean and Six Sigma practices for environmental sustainability, and vice versa (presentation).

Our Clients Say

I met Pam more than 10 years ago when I joined the TFI Quarterly Forum. Pam is an outstanding consultant in the supply-chain arena who provides a great deal of value to her clients. She is passionate about her work and applies the highest level of integrity in everything she does. Lean and Green is not just a catch phrase or title of her book, but is Pam’s mission in life that not only helps the planet but also benefits companies’ bottom lines.
