Thank you, Sean. Long time no see.
When we do our data analytics education, we often recognise that you can impress many with a simple Pivot table. This is not a bad thing. If we can add value so easily, why not. This is something they can apply successfully shortly after the workshop.
Showing that “Means are Lies” is another easy score.
I am of the opinion that you can put much of the current data analytics hype under the headline “Understanding Variation”. 🙂
Long time since I’ve seen you.
Like the article and right on point.
Especially the part about the “the average of something means nothing without variation and distribution”.
Still amazing how companies make substantial decisions on averages.
All the best.
