Statistical Consulting - Working Collaboratively with Non-statisticiansView Presentation *Frederick Faltin, The Faltin Group
Statistical consultants live and work in a variety of organizations: academia, corporations, government, as and independents. Notwithstanding those differences, nearly all of us interface primarily with non-statisticians as our clients/customers. Not surprisingly, then, there are important aspects of successful statistical consulting and cross-disciplinary communication that are common across most consulting environments. This overview will be a personal "Top N" list of lessons learned from a career spent consulting, and managing consultants, across a wide range of client organizations in many fields of endeavor.
