A thorough knowledge of statistics is essential for decision making in all corners of business and management. By collecting, organizing and analyzing statistical data you can express what you know, benchmark your current situation, and estimate future outcomes.

Based entirely on Microsoft Excel, this book covers a spectrum of statistic fundamentals from basic principles, to probability, sampling, hypothesis testing, forecasting, statistical process control and six-sigma management. This second edition is packed with features to aid understanding and help ensure that every aspect of your knowledge of statistics is applicable to practice, including:

  • Detailed worked examples in each chapter
  • Over 140 case-exercises complete with objective, situation, requirements, and answers
  • A complete glossary of key terminology and formulas, mathematical relationships, and Excel relationships and functions
