This course is designed as an introduction to basic spreadsheet tools and formulas. Candidates will be able to map data to predict the future. Major corporations and small businesses alike use spreadsheet models to determine where key measures of their success are now, and where they are likely to be in the future. But in order to get the most out of a spreadsheet, an analyst must know how to use it well. No prior familiarity with, and access to, Excel or Sheets is required. On successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
