Tutor Quote

Tutor Quote

“Students regularly express concern to me about statistics and their fear of studying statistics. I suggest to them that within any Improvement project, the statistics component can actually be one of the simpler parts of the project - we use data, software and time. A more unpredictable part of any project for me can be the people, the dynamics of relationships and uncertainties of working in teams. Both are challenging to the mind in different ways”
