Numbers for Life and Work


Some people love numbers, working with them, playing with them, and thinking about them. Other people do not. In my leadership roles I have found that many people do not even have a basic understanding of how to use numbers in their work. Concepts like types of numbers, percentages, slopes and trends are foreign to many American adults. A lot of people learned these things in high school or college, but have not used them since.

The MDH Institute exists to educate, to edify, and to entertain. Most of the things that we include are the direct result of problems that we have encountered in life and work. I have seen many teams fail and initiatives sputter because the action officers did not have the requisite numerical literacy to accomplish the mission. The attached article is intended to reintroduce workers and others to the uses of numbers, and help these people use them.
