Optimise Excel for data-driven decision making
Educated decisions are informed by data, which is often originated or stored in spreadsheets. Even small discrepancies might, over time, lead to high deviation from the reality reinforced by misinformed actions.
Decision-makers rarely process data in Excel
In many companies, one person would transform raw data into insights, and others would authorise actions based on it. Therefore the first of them has the duty to accurately present the comprehensive analytical picture going beyond just a plain dashboard or spreadsheet full of tables. Providing the full context and explanation of the methodology used is crucial for avoiding the loss of relevant information.
