I first met Davis Balestracci at a conference a few years back, where I heard him give a very spirited and insightful presentation. That’s why I’m happy to have him as my guest for Episode #323 of the podcast.
We’ll talk about a range of topics, including some of the key lessons that you’ll find in his book (as a much deeper dive than we can get into here) Data Sanity: A Quantum Leap to Unprecedented Results (2nd edition). Davis has been a long-time columnist for Quality Digest, and you’ll hear his thoughts on Process Behavior Charts, W. Edwards Deming, Lean Six Sigma, and more.
From his bio: “Davis has a BS degree in chemical engineering and an MS degree in statistics, yet describes himself as a “right-brained” statistician: his Myers-Briggs profile is INFP and he is a pipe organist who done graduate work in conducting.”
