Joe Valvona, SSMBB
For more than 20 years, Joe used his analytical, organizational, leadership and facilitation skills to develop proposals, assessments and plans to improve the financial and strategic positions of three organizations. Joe is a certified Master Black Belt who has developed Lean Six Sigma training courses, trained Lean Leaders and Green Belts, and led projects and improvement teams in two health care organizations. He led an analytics team that provided data analysis to address key issues for a 23-hospital health care system. Joe has also written grant proposals and published in peer-reviewed journals.
Joe’s passion is to identify issues that prevent organizations/departments from reaching their full potential and work with the appropriate team to improve performance. Another passion is teaching others new tools, techniques, and ways of looking at problems. I have been told that I have the ability to explain statistics and data analysis methods in a way that is understandable. Several Six Sigma students have told Joe that they wish he would have taught their college stats course because they finally understand it.
