Do you have a great idea you want to move forward and you need others to buy in?

Maybe you want to improve a process or implement a new analysis approach. Your business partner might be your study team or your supervisor.

Whenever, we want to change something, we usually need others to agree into the next steps.

  • What’s in it for your business partner?
    • Timelines?
    • Budget?
    • Recognition?
  • Can you quantify it?
    • Give a range

Join The Effective Statistician LinkedIn group

I want to help the community of statisticians, data scientists, programmers and other quantitative scientists to be more influential, innovative, and effective. I believe that as a community we can help our research, our regulatory and payer systems, and ultimately physicians and patients take better decisions based on better evidence.

I work to achieve a future in which everyone can access the right evidence in the right format at the right time to make sound decisions.

When my kids are sick, I want to have good evidence to discuss with the physician about the different therapy choices.

When my mother is sick, I want her to understand the evidence and being able to understand it.

When I get sick, I want to find evidence that I can trust and that helps me to have meaningful discussions with my healthcare professionals.

I want to live in a world, where the media reports correctly about medical evidence and in which society distinguishes between fake evidence and real evidence.

Let’s work together to achieve this.
