COURSE OVERVIEW

Whether you need to crunch numbers for sales, inventory, information technology, human resources, or other organizational purposes and departments, the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time can create a powerful competitive advantage. After all, the world runs on data more than ever before and that's a trend not likely to change, or even slow down, any time soon. But with so much data available and being created on a nearly constant basis, the ability to make sense of that data becomes more critical and challenging with every passing day. You already know how to get Microsoft® Office Excel® to perform simple calculations and how to modify your workbooks and worksheets to make them easier to read, interpret, and present to others.

AUDIENCE AND PREREQUISITES

This course is designed for students who already have foundational knowledge and skills in Excel 2016 and who wish to begin taking advantage of some of the higher-level functionality in Excel to summarize table data by using functions, charts, and PivotTables, and display those elements in a dashboard format.

This course is a combination of selected topics from the Logical Operations courses Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016: Part 2 and Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016: Part 3 and is specifically designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge to create effective dashboards. If students have already taken these two courses, they are unlikely to garner much new information from this course. To ensure success, students should have completed Logical Operations’ Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016: Part 1 or have the equivalent knowledge and experience. In particular, students should have some experience in creating workbooks with formulas and functions.
