Excel has powerful tools that enable busy users to set up systems that simplify data management, analysis and presentation. Effectively using Excel allows users to devote their time more profitably to making decisions about and acting on results, with more effective outcomes. This course gives practical experience in the use of Microsoft Excel for data summary, presentation and for other basic statistical work. It concentrates on areas where Excel really can excel in your workplace functions. We look at data entry and management, pivot tables, formulae, graphics for results presentation and useful shortcuts. Participants will learn through a series of practical simulations which ensures that they maximize their learning and can use the tools immediately when they return to the office. In addition to the practical component, all participants will also receive a manual describing all the techniques learned.
