    Patrick Keehan ’19 ’G20, business consultant for The University of Scranton Small Business Development Center, recently earned the title of Certified Green Belt from the International Association for Six Sigma Certification (IASSC).

    According to IASSC’s website, IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is “a professional who is well versed in the core to advanced elements of Lean Six Sigma Methodology,” which is a process that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation.

    Keehan will use this knowledge and expertise to assist small business clients of the Scranton SBDC with problem identification, solutions and implementation as well as discussing simple ways to improve operational efficiency. 

    “It’s not just a method, but a mindset that will always be there and manifest itself in the advice I give and how I listen to clients,” said Keehan.

    Keehan joined the SBDC in June 2020. He provides business consulting services to start-up and existing small business clients in the Scranton SBDC’s service area. He earned his MBA from The University of Scranton in 2020, and his bachelor’s degree in finance, summa cum laude, from the University in 2019. He also participated in the University’s Business Leadership Honors Program.

    Scranton’s SBDC, housed in the University’s Kania School of Management, serves eight counties in Northeastern and Northern Tier Pennsylvania.
