I never cease to be amazed at the amount of information that’s “out there” on the web. I searched on “Lean Six Sigma” and got about a million hits. “Process Improvement” – 3.6 million.”Change Management” – 6.2 million. “Project Management” – 32 million.

But lately I’ve been using an additional source of information-the ever-growing on-line video repository. There are several web sites out there that offer this resource, and so I have lately been amusing myself (in my spare time) by looking things up on the video sites – such as, names of statistical analysis software, phases of Six Sigma, and Lean tools. It is amazing what is available.

Now, I still feel that I have to review the videos carefully – just like I would an article that I was reading – to ensure that it conveys an accurate message or example. But, the last time someone asked about statistical software training, I actually recommended a video site – NOT something I would have done until recently – as well as giving info about the vendor’s training program and the software tutorial under the “Help” tab.

So the question of the day is, do any of you routinely mine this source when you are looking for information about process improvement tools and concepts? Should this be part of our search protocol when we “go to the web” to look up information? Inquiring minds want to know!!!
