This is a revamped Health Service SPC course, with all-new examples and exercises. This course is now much more focused on the techniques we can adopt to explain SPC to NHS managers and clinicians. So as well as going through all of the various run chart and control chart calculations (starting with raw data in Microsoft Excel), we devote a significant amount of time to rehearsing how to describe and narrate the charts - both in writing and in person.

Arguing with Numbers is a one-day course that shows how to write and speak about data. In the two morning sessions we concentrate on short (one-side-of-A4 documents or two-minute slots at a meeting) descriptions; in the two afternoon sessions we move on to longer, more complex scenarios (data-rich reports and longer, more formal presentations).
