?Why is statistics used in Process Improvement?? Is statistics really necessary or is it a way of keeping the masses confused about something that is mostly smoke and mirrors but is touted as a panacea? Are the training programs that downplay statistics . . . bad? These are great questions. In my training sessions I always ask ?who has previously taken a stats course?? With hands still in the air, I then ask, ?how many people liked the course?? Occasionally a few hands remain up, but often they are all down. The mere mention of stats usually sends students running for the door. Well not literally . . . but looks of disdain are all too common. In any case, most process improvement professionals do not look forward to the stats part of training. And I can understand why . . . the collective academic establishment doesn?t do a good job of making stats a valued analytical tool. Stats courses are relegated to rote learning about obscure concepts with little real life application. But it doesn?t have to be that way. With appropriately designed content, a competent and passionate teacher, stats can be fun . . . engaging even. So back to the original question, ?Why is statistics used in Process Improvement?? The answer I believe is . . . to manage risk.
