Minimize your business risk by making better use of statistics. The learning organization has given way to the knowledge organization - one that is deluged with information, some of it fact and some of it fiction. To allow us to manage our risks, we need to learn to use statistics to better understand how much faith we can place in the data upon which we base our decisions. Fortunately, today's computer programs have taken the drudgery out of statistics. You only need to know how to ask the right questions to quantify your risks. That is what "Statistical Analysis Simplified" is all about. It lays out in simple, easy-to-understand language the principles of statistical analysis and statistical thinking - the keys to minimizing variation and improving quality. Each chapter is based upon practical, proven, business-friendly templates that use measurement, numbers, and data to provide new insights and show you how to make better decisions. This breakthrough book explains: easy and useful methods to compare and contrast groups of numbers, providing new insights into a wide variety of situations; how the answers to 'unsolvable' problems are often in the data - and how to see them; and, proven ways to translate the logic and power of measurement to your own, seemingly unrelated applications. "Statistical Analysis Simplified" will change the way in which you see numbers, measurements, and statistics. This accessible, one-of-a-kind book/CD communications package simplifies statistical methods so that everyone can understand and use them. Once you are familiar with each, you will become an expert at choosing the right method to instantly clarify your decision process, help solve your toughest problems, and even prevent problems from occurring.
