Inside Statistics: The Mean, the Median and the Message

To be an effective financial executive, you must be a good source of analytics.  Yet some statistics simply don’t add up – be it overly precise percentages, biased interpretation or just plain nonsense numbers.  Whether it’s internal decision-making, financial analysis or external reporting, it’s important to develop and deliver data in a discerning manner.  In this session we’ll review how to be a thoughtful financial communicator who produces useful data and utilizes statistics responsibly.


Learning objectives:

  • Identify the characteristics of appropriate statistics for use in historical analysis and future forecasting
  • How to use statistics and analysis to create actionable business analyses
  • Important skills to analyze third-party metrics and ensure appropriate underlying data-gathering techniques
