Keith Bower's biography

This website was started in 2004 in response to the frequent statistical questions Keith received while working as a technical trainer for Minitab. The site provided a one-stop location to house the information.

Since that start, the available resources have expanded from short articles to audio and video podcasts, as well as technical papers. There have been over 1.6 million views of his YouTube videos since he began using that platform.

All these materials are available via links from this website, and may be more easily found by using the Search Engine located near the menu bar at the top of each webpage.
