Every time I look at this picture, I think of Dr. Demingâ€™s words to drive out fear and take joy in your work. We were talking in my home office when Sylvester saw a good lap and took it. Our conversation immediately shifted when both Dr. Deming and Sylvester started purring.
The greatest statistical analysis is nothing if it canâ€™t be implemented by people. But people learn in different ways. Some like good stories, others like pictures. Only a few like equations. Dr. Deming always liked a good laugh; and a good purr.
By what method do you get your analyses implemented?
