  • Includes multiple card and coin illusions, complete with over 100 photos and graphs for easy application to explain probability theory, Bayesian Statistics and Design of Experiments.
  • Presents the sport of juggling to demonstrate several elementary statistical concepts such as equipment reliability, statistical process control and design of experiments.
  • Explains how to use experimental helicopters to teach Hypothesis Testing methodology and advanced Design of Experiments.
  • Building on past experts in this field such as George Box and Dr. Deming, this book will explore the visual and the hands-on side of learning experimentation
  • Includes a suggested course for instructors based on the author's history of teaching and applying Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement  throughout the world.


What happens when the sport of Juggling meets a Statistical Process Control class? This book shows a creative approach to teaching data analysis for continuous improvement. Using step by step instructions, including over 65 photos and 40 graphs, traditional continuous improvement topics (design of experiments, reliability functions, and probability) are demonstrated using card illusions and hands-on activities.

This book is for anyone that teaches these topics and wants to make them more understandable and sometimes even fun. Every operator, technician, student, manager, and leader can learn data analysis and be inspired to join the next generation of continuous improvement professionals.
