A very brief introduction to statistics

I recently presented a few slides to colleagues who wanted to learn more about statistics. It was an informal 40 minute chat where I tried to touch on various statistical terms that are thrown around in many workplaces.

This brought back memories of when I did my MSc in Business Analytics in 2010/11. I gave weekly statistics tutorials to a group of about 80 freshmen commerce undergraduates for an entire semester. If you ever get the opportunity to teach, grab it! It is a great way to find out that you may not know as much as you think you know.

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” another apocryphal Einstein quote and so so true.
