Back when I was involved with some 10 different research projects every week, I realized that one of the weakest points in my training was statistics. I needed those skills to discern if what we were doing was actually an improvement or not. As a techie, I was taught to believe (yes, that’s the verb) that statistical analysis would remove any bias I would bring to the analysis.
We were working with a new client, helping to set up the systems and find the employees it will need to make the venture a success. During one of the discussions on direction and attitude, the client voiced that our Jewish values were truly helpful. I, for one, did not consider these to be innately Jewish- especially since my business partner of decades agreed with these “credos”- and he is a Southern Baptist. Moreover, I believe every person and company (every company is really a collection of individuals with a common mission) needs to espouse values or credos such as these to succeed. It has nothing to do with one’s religion.
