For all you creative and fun-loving folks out there, in this blog post I'm going to share a puzzle instead of a story or lesson. The holiday season is getting into full swing here in the United States, and that gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect, and even have a little fun while still thinking about how we can improve our processes and products.
Perhaps you're wondering what a puzzle has to do with the topics we usually talk about on the Minitab Blog—like improving quality or analyzing data. Most of us think about puzzles as leisure activities, perhaps very separate from our professional roles. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth!
Working a puzzle helps develop your abilities to reason, analyze, sequence, deduce, and apply logical thought processes and problem-solving skills. These are the kinds of skills a data analyst needs when performing Fearless Data Analysis!
So with that in mind, here are the four steps you'll need to follow to find this puzzle's greeting:
1. Find the hidden words in the word search puzzle.
2. Match the hidden words with the clues below the puzzle.
3. Use the marked letters to fill in the blanks to reveal a Holiday Greeting from Minitab.
4. Have fun!
