YouTube as a Performance Support Tool

I always thought of YouTube primarily as a place where quirky (often involving dogs or kids) and occasionally informative videos could be viewed (and, of course, posted) but I never gave it serious consideration as a tool for supporting performance. That is, until a few days ago.

I am doing pre-work for a workshop about understanding and improving the way we do business. As part of that pre-work, I have been viewing a number of presentations on YouTube dealing with various aspects of business: Operations, Supply Chain, Quality Assurance, etc. Many of these presentations are a far cry from the home grown production quality one often sees. Want to watch Michael E. Porter discuss the five competitive forces that shape strategy? Need a quick refresher on SWOT Analysis? These and other gems are there on YouTube, waiting to be mined. The only thing missing is a structured approach to accessing them. That is where we come in.
