Long Description:

Business Performance Improvement LLC is a sustainable process improvement consulting firm located in Portland, Oregon, founded by Brion Hurley. Our mission is focused on “helping businesses and organizations achieve “triple bottom line” performance using Lean and Six Sigma.” We are a Certified B Corporation, 1% for the Planet member, Oregon Benefit company, and we volunteer our expertise with Lean Portland.

We are driven by a desire to make the world a better place. The UN Sustainable Development Goals provide a list of 17 major initiatives that need to be improved. We use the Multnomah County Climate Action Plan to drive our efforts to reduce carbon emissions within the region, specifically around energy usage, wasted food, and materials going to the landfill.

We are a network of consultants dedicated to helping businesses and organizations develop a culture and discipline of process improvement beyond just making money (profits). We focus on practical, hands-on experience and learning, not weeks of training that provides no tangible benefits.

BPI donates at least one solar panel monthly to the nonprofit, Everybody Solar.
