What if Excel could integrate fragmented spreadsheets to sustain a 360° Corporate Scenario Planning error-free?
What if this solution could be adopted to perform consolidation of plans and budgets across the organization’s subsidiaries and be aggregated with few clicks?
When surfing the web, you may find dozens of articles that warn how Excel can be dangerous and source of risks for the organizations. Excel is not necessarily worse than other applications.
It is just the lack of best practice to help organizations design, implement and sustain spreadsheet applications.
But, how can we sketch best practice for designing a professional spreadsheet?
In this document we provide some insights from our everyday experience such as:
- Apply a project-oriented approach as if the spreadsheet were an application software
- Clearly identify business requirements
- Design & build a prototype
- Test, test and...test
- Sustain and enhance the application after go-live
- Design the most efficient architecture
- Segregate activities with multiple worksheets
- Insert knowledge area (Quick Guide, Help etc.)
- Separate input and output
