Welcome Leadership Team Session 2: April 2003 Introduction to Quality Tools: Tools for Improving Planning and Instruction
Opener Provide each person at your table with one sheet of the reflection comments found in the middle of your table. Is this the way narrative survey data is often presented? What do people do with qualitative data like this? How might we organize the information in order to make more sense out of it?
Opener As you read through the comments, answer: What are the themes of reflection? Share the themes you found with others at your table.
Pareto Charts A pareto chart is one of the quality tools that help us make sense out of data and/or information. (graph the data, graph the data, graph the data!) Use a pareto chart when you are trying to separate the vital few vs. the trivial many.
