Statisticians: Where Are We Headed? Spring 1989 Mini Paper
Abstract: The world of industry and commerce is changing rapidly. An old view of the role of the statistician depended solely on whether the statistician and the client were each active or passive. In a new view, an active organization leads to additional roles for the statistician. Those involved in changing the organizations they work for will need to learn the techniques of organizational development.
