Frequently Asked Questions

Honestly, these questions haven’t been asked all that frequently, but I expect they might be helpful, so here goes…

Who is SuperEasyStats for?

SuperEasyStats is built with the philosophy (based on my experience training and mentoring hundreds of people over the years) that there are a relatively small number of tools that cover the needs of most people who are practicing “structured problem solving” (primarily Lean and Six Sigma type projects). If you are someone who has gone through Lean Six Sigma training and you want to use the tools you were taught to solve problems, but without wasting a lot of time trying to remember complex functions,  or trying to figure out complex, specialized software, then SuperEasyStats is for you.

Is SuperEasyStats free?

No….and yes! Currently SuperEasyStats is in beta testing, which means you won’t have to pay to use it. But it will eventually be “officially” released, and then it will cost real money. Not monopoly money or bitcoin, but cold hard cash. Seriously, though, it won’t be too expensive. Read on…

How much will SuperEasyStats cost?

Not sure, still working on that. But the whole point is that it’s meant to be much, much less expensive than the “big boys” (you know who you are). As soon as I know, I’ll publish the price.

Will there be discounts for Beta Testers

Oh, why the heck not, you folks are awesome!

Are you going to add more functionality?

Absolutely! What’s available now in the beta version is the “minimum viable product”. More functionality is coming before the official release.

That said, SuperEasyStats is, by design, meant to have a more limited set of tools than other packages. There are two reasons for that: First, the driving philosophy behind this project is that it should be “super easy”! If there are too many tools to pick from, things stop being so easy and become overly complicated. Secondly, you can do a lot with this limited set of tools. In my years coaching Lean practitioners, I saw the same tools used again and again to get great results. Those are the tools that are included in SuperEasyStats. Certainly there are less frequently used tools that are powerful and incredibly useful, but most folks don’t need them most of the time. Third (yes, I know I said there were two reasons, but you’re getting this extra reason for free!), it’s just not feasible to add every analytical tool under the sun and keep SuperEasyStats affordable. And  affordability is a key feature!
