Hear from analytics thought leaders (and get their books too)
Dec 3, 2014 10:14 AM
Analytics thought leaders are busy folks these days as more organizations are finding analytics are key to their success. But once a month, a different analytics expert makes time to have a conversation with my colleague Anne Milley for the Analytically Speaking webcast series. Their discussions cover statistics, design of experiments, quality engineering, data visualization, and consumer and market research.
We’ve compiled some of the highlights from the series in a webcast we're calling Analytically Speaking Featuring the Best in Show. It will be shown Wednesday, Dec. 10, 1 – 2:30 p.m. ET. This webcast premiered on December 10. It is now available on demand. The best in show includes:
SAS co-founder John Sall on the importance of the statistical discipline.
Behavioral economist and author Dan Ariely on why more businesses don’t experiment.
Statistical Thinking authors Ronald Snee and Roger Hoerl on the relationship between quality and reliability.
Popular bloggers Kaiser Fung and Alberto Cairo on the elements of good data visualization.
Words of wisdom for aspiring data analysts from esteemed statisticians David Salsburg and Stu Hunter.
And, of course, Professor Dick De Veaux on how he became the official statistician of The Grateful Dead!
