    Brit:
    Naturally, it is your option, but this is a forum not a chat room. Therefore, in order to get the best possible answers to your question, you may find it beneficial to be a bit more specific in what your requirements are in starting this journey.
    The fact is, many simular posts to yours don’t get an answer because the topic is too general and it appears that you have decided not to use some of the basic tools of this fine web forum.
    First, use the link in the blue bar on your left side, New to Six Sigma, and read as many topics and get the basics. Have you reviewed the suggested message guidelines for writing effective messages? In fact, have you reviewed the entire available content in the blue bar looking for stuff that is useful to you?
    Second, a general question like this will open the door for personal opinion from strangers regarding your request. You will also find that many people will not completely understand your intention and will offer confusing advice. Accept advice with caution.
    Third, what have you done regarding searching for non-internet related content at your library, or university, or company? While the basic tool set of practicing organizations are simular, the “flavors” of Six Sigma are as numerous as ice cream. New to Six Sigma means you may be reviewing material which may not be useful to you specifically, or much to advanced. In reviewing books, look to the books with older publishing dates to start with if it is possible to borrow them or have your library obtain them for you.
    You may disagree, but an actual book is much easier to focus on than electronic medium. E-content like web forum’s are fungible, a book/personal copy of e-book is better for most learning. Have you started there?
    Fourth, review past threads to see how ideas and content are relayed here to see the dynamics of how things work here. Things happen fast, opinion is portrayed as fact, and you have to be able to tell the difference.
    My suggestion. Good luck in your journey.

    Good advice Phil.
    Brit, I suggest you start with any thread containing “miker” or “1.5 shift”. If that doesn’t scare you off, come back with a question.

    Stan is our resident sarcas-tician. His point is that things here are not linear. This medium provides numerous opportunites to “off-road with a wack-job” and can be a great deal of fun if you know what’s happening, but distressing if you do not. We’ve seen it a lot.
    But do come back with more specific questions.
