As a practical aside, once you have your data collected, you can crank it through both the paired and 2 sample t and see if the two tests offer different “opinions”. If you accept/fail to accept the null in both tests, you have what you need…and dont forget to run your power and sample size test (especially if the test “fails”) to quan…[Read more]
Your post, whether it was brilliant, pointless, inspirational, useless, etc. generated four responses. That would be about the average daily traffic for all four adjacent sites to this one.

How about first defining what it is you are trying to accomplish? How is the restaurant going to combine its own unique combination of assets to create a competitive edge in the local market place? Now develop a relevent system of performance measures that allow you to deploy said strategy…..now you are in a position to start assessing and sel…[Read more]
Look under the Tool and Template heading on the big blue bar to your left under control charts, it will give you good information. Points to note:
