The interpretation of data assigns a meaning to the information analyzed and determines its signification and implications. The importance of data interpretation is evident and it needs to be done properly. Is it improvement, or isn’t it? Correctly interpreting data is critical to ensure appropriate decisions are made about processes and need for changes. This second session will provide an overview of how to assess data for signals of improvement, such as trends and why run charts are essential tools for determining improvement vs. normal variation.
