You got it, Broadway! Seeing the high and mighty fail can be truly cathartic and satisfying! Except of course if that decision ends up meaning your job or division has been rendered obsolete or duplicative.

Come on, Terry. There's got to be a little Schadenfreude in seeing an exec go down because of a gut decision made after he or she rejected what the data said. If you don't enjoy a little "I told you so" now and again, you're not alive, right?

I beg to differ, bkbeverly... "Insights for better decisions" creates the business imperative that ought to get the attention of those on the "C" suite. I don't disagree with anything you said, but I don't think "Good stats matter" has the same oomph.

To the extent that the laws that govern our lives are derived from public policy research, if all lives are to matter, then "Good Stats Matter" will have to be the rule and not the exception. Not artificially sweetened or poisoned stats, but good stats. The laws will only be as good as the data that support them. Good stats matter.
