Jim Wilcox, an award winning painter, has provided essential landscape painting instruction on plein air study and on studio pieces from plein air study.
4 hours of art instruction - Jim first paints a 20" x 16" plein air painting and then returns to the studio to paint a 40" x 30" from the smaller plein air version. One camera shows him mixing his paints, another shows the canvas as he applies the paint, and the third shows Jim as he explains what he is doing and why he is doing it. Jim says, "Its like my plein air workshop, minus the personal abuse."

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


Cynthia Fraser, "Business Statistics for Competitive Advantage with Excel 2010: Basics, Model Building, and Cases"

Publisher: ---nger | ISBN: 144199856X | 2012 | PDF | 485 pages | 33.7 MB
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.
