Understand Business. Understand Data.
The 3rd Edition of Statistics for Business: Decision Making and Analysis emphasizes an application-based approach, in which students learn how to work with data to make decisions. In this contemporary presentation of business statistics, students learn how to approach business decisions through a 4M Analytics decision making strategy–motivation, method, mechanics and message–to better understand how a business context motivates the statistical process and how the results inform a course of action. Each chapter includes hints on using Excel, Minitab Express, and JMP for calculations, pointing the student in the right direction to get started with analysis of data.
