Enhancing the value of analysis through effective communication

Being good at statistical analysis is not enough to be a valued employee in today’s business world.  The emphasis also has to be on effectively communicating results to various audiences.  In a professional setting, performing a great statistical analysis only takes on real value when decision makers can use the findings to guide their decision making.  Effective communication is the bridge between a technically great statistical analysis and truly useful statistical analysis. This session will address the importance of emphasizing to students that good visualization and explanation, appropriate for their audience, is an important skill in their statistical tool box.  An overview of current trends in industry presentations will be presented.
