TQG Expands Six Sigma E-Learning Efforts

Published: Monday, June 28, 2004 - 22:00

The Quality Group recently entered into an agreement with the authors of the best-selling Memory Jogger series and Sailing Through Six Sigma to supply content for TQG’s online e-learning solutions.

Over the past decade and a half, Michael Brassard and Diane Ritter have authored and edited 10 books in a dozen languages, with cumulative sales of more than 8 million. At the same time, TQG has been developing e-learning architectures that allow enterprising customers to quickly and cost-effectively brand and customize content from existing materials, create online universities, manage students and measure learning. The new alliance, says TQG CEO Rob Stewart, is an effective partnership.

“We are excited about the potential for this relationship,” says Stewart. “By working with Brassard & Ritter, our e-learning customers will have ‘just-in-time’ access from any screen within our existing courseware. The Brassard & Ritter content is a significant step forward toward our goal of delivering world-class e-learning solutions that drive bottom-line results.”

The new e-learning content includes the use of expanded “tool boxes,” providing students with a desktop reference library of terminology, DMAIC basics and more than 50 Six Sigma tools, which they can access while using the company’s online software.

TQG reports that the new content is currently being integrated into its system and should be available for student use by late summer. For more information, go to www.thequalitygroup.net.
