    Title: The Evolution of a Statistical Consulting Course

    Abstract: In 2000, Duane Steffey and I founded the SDSU Consulting Center and developed a Statistical Consulting course in response to university and private consulting requests and a desire to better train our graduate students for careers as applied statisticians. In the successive 15 years, I became increasingly devoted to statistical consulting as a career and eventually left academia for a career in consulting. In 2009, I founded Kelly Statistical Consulting. My industrial consulting experience has revised my vision of what is important to teach in a consulting course. In this talk, I present the common elements to most statistical consulting courses and how my presentation of these elements has evolved over the last 15 years. I discuss the (sometimes hard) lessons learned, and what I believe to be the key elements of a successful course.
