Programme Objective

It has been said that the 95/5 rule applies in the Excel spreadsheet world. 95% of the users used only 5% of its power. Most users realized that they could further harness the power of Excel if they could have a better handle of its structure, formulas and functions. This is much complicated by the incomprehensive jargon and procedures.

Nothing is more powerful than having clear and accurate data to make meaningful and useful decisions about your company, business units, product cycles, sales projections and operating requirements in order to forecast your business futures. This programme is directed at the businessperson who needs to use Excel in their everyday job to improve decision-making and productivity.
