There is a lot of information to share this month. We've got company news, conference reports and news, a reminder that we're always on the hunt for new article submissions, and that's without all of this month's articles!
Last year our sister publication, iSixSigma.com, launched a Marketplace for e-publications (http://store.isixsigma.com/). The Marketplace sells a wide selection of immediately downloadable electronic documents. More importantly, it markets and sells items produced by small companies and individuals, allowing them to reach their target audience in a cost-effective and low-risk manner.
The Marketplace's success has been so great with sellers and buyers alike that later this spring CTQ Media (parent company to Real Innovation and iSixSigma) will launch a re-designed and re-engineered website to include other CTQ Media topics – expanding into the areas of systematic innovation and business process management.
What can you sell? Materials that business professionals want in any number of forms, including:
How do you become a partner? Once you have a product ready for sale that is 100 percent owned by you or your company, contact the Marketplace via email (http://store.isixsigma.com/contact.asp) with your request to partner or contact Marketplace manager Virginia Hill directly at 206-347-0943 or Virginia.Hill@iSixSigma.com.
Until June, happy TRIZ reading!
