    Newbee,
     
    Not sure why you need to prove a statistical difference.  If I was coaching you (and I’m not) this is what I would say.
     

    Practical – If before = 2 and after = 5 —– Stop
    Graphical – If obvious —– Stop
    Analytical — Run a hypo test —– Stop
     Easy way out – Run descriptive stats.

  • Spooky!  It’s like you were reading my last “year end evaluation”.

  • You could share this string with them.  I know just reading it has made has made me proud of my trade.

    Ps – Booze works.

    Fun Fairy, Really?!!  Oh come on!!!!  
     
    I have just as good “hard” skills as Butler and Stan.  And I can kick butt just as well as Carnell!  Ok, I can’t even keep a straight face while writing that.
     
    BTW – You can’t afford me.  Unless you willing to match my current $27 K per year.

    Jodee, be careful – while I was doing time at BofA, I saw them being used as weapons as well as tools.

    Pari –   By knowing that your data is Non normal – you have already analyzed your data.  That being said, – want are you figure out?    Most of the stat package tools are sensitive enough that the normality of the data is not as critical as a lot of people would like to think.   Stevo  

  • Stevo replied to the topic ??? CSSBB Exam in the forum General 12 years, 11 months ago

    Andy – Be aware.
     
    It’s a stupid requirement – for multiple reasons.
     
    And bad companies make stupid requirements.
     
    But I get it, times are bad and you do what you have to do.

    Ps. – Don’t let the other posters bother you, all (I kid not) every single one of them is incompetent.
     

  • Stan – Do you have any white papers you can sell this guy?  And if he throws in a couple extra bucks, can you give him his black belt certification?  Kind of a package deal.

    Eugene,
     
    My posts are usually either sarcastic or require the reader to make an interpretation of the post and has everything to do with six sigma, we work in a much broader space than most people think.
     
    My genius will show itself in good time (usually after 5 drinks).
     
    Your new best friend, – Stevo

  • Stevo replied to the topic Managers at Gemba in the forum General 13 years ago

    Ok. Ok.  Let’s not get to excited here.  We can’t just go around and change how I justify my enormous salary.  Using terms like Gemba and Muda is how I distance myself from the “little people”.  It’s much easier to give the elusion of talent then proving it by results.

    Darth,
    Why can you only appreciate my wisdom after 6 drinks?

    Forrest,
     
    Don’t be discourage, most of the people here don’t get “it”.  Your genius is way beyond their mental capability.  Keep fighting the righteous fight.

    Ps.  I to am often misunderstood.

    Ps.  “Outside” = beyond and “Box” is a metaphor for the voices screaming in our head.  So “Outside the box” means not listening or overcoming the voices.  Purple d…[Read more]

  • Stevo replied to the topic Virus in the forum General 13 years, 3 months ago

    I’m not sure if it’s a virus or not, but I keep getting a lot of stupid posts and responses.  Please let me know when that’s fixed.
     
    Thank you,  – Stevo

  • Best fight seen ever.
    From Wikipedia – “Cripple Fight”
    “The mini-DVD commentary for the episode describes how the fight between Jimmy and Timmy is based on the fight between John Nada (Roddy Piper) and Frank Armitage (Keith David) in the 1988 film They Live, including the numerous knees to the groin and the insistence that Timmy put on the hat…[Read more]

  • Just like Jello, there’s always room for more stupidity.
    Stevo.
    PS.  This is why I tried to stay away.  I thought either I would get smarter or the forum would seem less stupid.  My bad.

  • DjZ,
     
    On a scale from 1 to 10 it’s impossible to have a -1000, oh wait I get it, you were being sarcastic.  I wasn’t. 
     
    Sometimes you have protect a novice from themselves.  By the type of question that was asked, he has no business trying to “sell” six sigma to anyone.  He will do more damage than good.

  • Horst,
     
    Not sure of your angle.
     
    If you are a consultant trying to drum up business; there is probably a better approach.
     
    If you are a true disciple of continuous improvement, then it’s in your best interest not to sell “the time now is right for getting started with six sigma”.  Explain the facts and let them decide.
     
    If you are tryi…[Read more]

    Hbgb b^2, how good was our feedback?  It was late and we were drunk when we met with the fake Mike.  I think I wanted him to add emoticons and a B***S *** button.

  • Annon and on –
     
    Loved the post!  It had the right mixture of intelligence, arrogance, sarcasm, pessimism and just a pinch of frustration.  And if you let it linger on the pallet, it opens up to controversy.
     
    Very nice,  – Stevo
