What Business Excel Really Means:
I’ve received a lot of questions on what Excel for Business really means. Using Microsoft Excel in a business setting can be boiled down to three broad categories:
How do you take large data sets and extract the information you need? Furthermore, how do you take the information you need and forecast results? Using Excel in a business setting is about taking raw data and transforming it meaningful information. Many of these functions and calculations are already baked into the Excel software.
When you’re working with thousands of transactions and billions of dollars, Excel can perform calculations in seconds which otherwise would take hours manually. Using Excel correctly can not only save you countless number of hours, but also, can save your company countless number of dollars.
There are three keys in building a strong model- flexibility, results, and clarity. Flexibility means that a user can change any inputs and the model will automatically calculate a new result. Whether it’s forecasts or estimates, inputs are always changing. Building a model that can accommodate that is the foundation to any good model. Secondly, you must learn to present information in a clear, concise, and visually appealing manner. If someone can’t understand, it won’t matter how good your model is. Lastly, you must build a model that not only applies the correct logic, but can you give information that solves problems.
