My department just received such training from The Quality Institute (545
Weadley Road, Strafford, PA 19807, 610-975-9729). It was very good. There's
also the booklet handed out to us as part of the course, The Memory Jogger
II, "A Pocket Guide of Tools for Continuous Improvement & Effective
Planning," from GOAL/QPC (13 Branch Street, Methuen, MA 01844-1953,
1-800-643-4316, FAX 508-685-6151). This $6.95 booklet distills all the
essentials of the above tools into a succinct but easily understood format.
I think you might be able to teach yourself the essentials of these tools
just using this little book.
