Students learn to build models using logic and experience, produce statistics using Excel 2007 with shortcuts, and translate results into implications for decision makers.

Exceptional managers know that they can create competitive advantages by basing decisions on performance response under alternative scenarios.  To create these advantages, managers need to understand how to use statistics to provide information on performance response under alternative scenarios. This updated edition of the popular text helps business students develop competitive advantages for use in their future careers as decision makers. Students learn to build models using logic and experience, produce statistics using Excel 2010 with shortcuts, and translate results into implications for decision makers. The author emphasizes communicating results effectively in plain English and with compelling graphics in the form of memos and PowerPoints.

Statistics, from basics to sophisticated models, are illustrated with examples using real data such as students will encounter in their roles as managers. A number of examples focus on business in emerging global markets with particular emphasis on China and India. Results are linked to implications for decision making with sensitivity analyses to illustrate how alternate scenarios can be compared. Chapters include screenshots to make it easy to conduct analyses in Excel 2010 with time-saving shortcuts expected in the business world.

PivotTables and PivotCharts, used frequently in businesses, are introduced from the start. Monte Carlo simulation is introduced early, as a tool to illustrate the range of possible outcomes from decision makers’ assumptions and underlying uncertainties. Model building with regression is presented as a process, adding levels of sophistication, with chapters on multicollinearity and remedies, forecasting and model validation, autocorrelation and remedies, indicator variables to represent segment differences, and seasonality, structural shifts or shocks in time series models. Special applications in market segmentation and portfolio analysis are offered, and an introduction to conjoint analysis is included. Nonlinear models are motivated with arguments of diminishing or increasing marginal response, and a chapter on logit regression models introduces models of market share or proportions. The Second Edition includes more explanation of hypothesis tests and confidence intervals, how t, F, and chi square distributions behave.

Comments to eBook Business Statistics for Competitive Advantage with Excel 2010: Basics, Model Building, and Cases

I bought Business Statistics for Competitive Advantage with Excel 2010 because I am interested in modeling market time series. There are so many data series available in the news, but I wanted to quantify their impact on markets. I began using the Data Analysis tool in Excel but needed help understanding how to build models and interpret the results. Professor Fasers' book has been invaluable. There are spreadsheets that can be downloaded from a website. I will be going through these examples in the near future. The book was challenging for me as a person who only had a few statistics courses many years ago.

This is a first-rate guide to the use of statistics in business. It fills an important need for those who require a text deeper than the usual run-of-the-mill "statistics for business people" kind of book, but who are also a long way from being scholars of mathematical statistics. In particular, Dr. Fraser's book provides clear information on how to carry out practical statistical modeling, even if one happens not to be a trained econometrician!

Above all, this book provides something genuinely useful; a guide to how to use statistics in a real world business environment. One aspect of this this book that is especially attractive is the copious use of examples, all with a practical look and feel to them and lots of nice illustrative graphics too. This will surely give both business students and executives a sense of comfort, since I think they will easily be able to take the examples provided in the book and translate them into formulas for solving the specific business problems with which they are primarily involved.

Finally, Dr. Fraser's book emphasizes the use of Excel rather than some less accessible specialist statistical package. This too makes it an excellent choice for someone looking for a meaty and actionable guide to business statistics.

This is NOT a book you want if you are trying to learn this subject. Riddled with typos and errors that make learning very tough. MAKE SURE you have a backup source for learning, like youtube or another textbook. Very disappointed.
