In this course, attendees will learn key driver analysis and business application examples of regression across human resources, marketing, operations, and finance. Using programs like Excel and SPSS, attendees will learn how to apply regression effectively, regardless of their previous experience.

    PTCMW lost a much-valued friend and colleague on March 26, 2016, with the passing of James L. Outtz (1947-2016), after a four-year battle with cancer.  Dr. Outtz earned his Ph.D. in I/O from the University of Maryland in 1976 under Professor Irv Goldstein.  As President of Outtz and Associates, Washington, DC, James worked as an I/O consultant to government and private industry, as well as serving as an expert witness in many high-profile court cases.  James distinguished himself for his innovative research and practice in the development of employee selection procedures with minimum adverse impact while retaining validity.  He was a popular speaker at professional conferences and received many professional honors.  He was SIOP’s 2016 President-Elect at the time of his death.
