Killer Excel Dashboard Reports

For Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Office version 2013, 2016 & 365

This isn't Excel - it's magic!

Do your reports take a lot of work for you to update each period? And a lot of work for your readers to understand? Your Excel reports don't have to be that way. Not only can you create reports that are easy to update, you can make them much easier to read.

Excel dashboard reports act like the dashboard of your car – they present business information in a way that's easy to read and easy to understand. If you want to know how to create Excel reports like these - or if you want standard reports that are easier to create, easier to update, and easier to read - then this is going to be one of the most valuable workshops you've attended.

With the help of just a few simple techniques, Excel offers significant power to generate high-quality, low-maintenance management reports, including dashboards. For example, it is possible to report sales, cash flow, headcounts, competitor performance, customer survey results and economic data…all in the same report.

Dashboard Reports serve as business intelligence; a business early warning system. Giving managers a high-level overview of the business and the ability to make quick decisions. Because we can change our Excel reports quickly, we can respond to managers' changing information needs.
