If you have ever asked, “How do I know which of the changes I am testing is actually having a significant impact on the outcome of interest?” this 12-hour workshop on planned experimentation is for you!
Many projects may have multiple direct and indirect factors affecting the outcome. There may also be factors you have not thought about or included in your project. If a model explains only a relatively small amount of the variation in the dependent variable, it would be considered a rather weak model. In addition, there may be multiple interactions between independent variables that impact the outcome. So how do you tease apart the messiness of this typical project scenario and make improvements?
Planned experimentation (PE), an adaptation of design of experiments developed and used extensively in agriculture and manufacturing, has been used widely in health and social service arenas, and is the statistical approach that we will focus on to assist you in teasing out the answers to these important questions. It will help you to determine which factor or combination of factors are impacting the outcome the most.
By the end of the program, you will gain:
- An understanding of PE concepts, methods, and tools
- An ability to design a factorial PE
- The statistical and graphical skills needed to analyze and interpret a PE
