Förändring - för en ännu bättre arbetsmiljö

Vi i Sverige har bland världens bästa arbetsmiljö. Det innebär inte att allt är frid och fröjd men att det gjorts mycket bra som vi kan lära av och utveckla. Oftast får vi bara höra om när det gått väldigt fel på en arbetsplats, mer sällan lyfts det fram vilka framsteg som gjorts inom arbetsmiljöområdet genom långsiktigt arbete och samverkan…

Each myth is an unconditional statement that, when taken literally and at face value, is false. All are false under some conditions while a few are not true under any condition. This book explores the conditions that render false the universality of the statements to help you understand why.

In the book, six characters discuss various topics taught in a fictional course intended to teach students how to apply statistics to improve processes. The reader follows along and learns as the students apply what they learn to a project in which they are team members.

Each discussion is like a Platonic dialogue. The purpose of a Platonic dialogue is to analyze a concept, statement, hypothesis, or theory through questions, applications, examples, and counterexamples, to see if it is true, when it is true, and why it is true when it is true. The dialogues will help readers understand why certain statements are not always true under all conditions, as well as when they contradict other myths.
