Statistics for Business
This book/disk package is aimed at numerate managers who have no knowledge of statistics. As a comprehensive introduction to statistics it covers the basics as simply as possible, using the computer package as an interactive aid to learning. Concepts difficult to explain with words are demonstrated by the package, and the reader can experiment with different parameters to see the effects graphically and numerically. The manager will quickly learn the use and power of comparatively simple statistical techniques and will be able to interpret the results of their analysis for business decision-making. This package is intended for managers or students of management requiring an introductory grounding in statistics for their work or studies. This will particularly appeal to those who are familiar with spreadsheets but terrified of statistics.
