Summary of Course Content

  • Best practice in structuring models
  • Building models using best practice Excel® techniques
  • Building inflation into the model
  • Creating cash flow waterfalls
  • Modelling taxes balance sheet
  • Using the model for analysis, including valuations
  • Use of Excel® tools to support sensitivity analysis
  • Goal seek
  • Watch window function
  • Data tables
  • Scenario manager


The principal aim of the course is to enable participants to use Microsoft Excel® to prepare logical and easy-to-use financial models to support transactions, forecasts and planning for ongoing business needs. The course will review best practice in model structures and logic, and use tools to highlight areas of risk, particularly in sensitivity analysis.


Practical exercises enable a deeper and more effective building of skills. Each section will be covered as a module in the traditional class style, but the real learning experience will be found in the exercises within each module. Suggested solutions to each exercise will be provided and discussed, and delegates will be encouraged to review their work independently. This will ensure you leave the course ready to apply your new knowledge.
