A looming issue in eLearning is the training community’s need to effectively integrate and partner with project management in the corporate environment. Project managers tie together all the disciplines in a project. The difficulty is that trainers need to talk to the larger community, including project management, to get to the completion of a project. Six Sigma has become hugely important in the world of project management. It's a form of project management that incorporates a school of thought, a common language, and a toolkit widely applied in the corporate environment. It’s not possible to speak of contemporary Project Management without understanding the contribution of Six Sigma.
