New Book for Professionals Using Excel® Helps to Save Time and Effort in Creating Financial Models for Business Analysis
The majority of Excel® users is self-taught. They often know some of Excel®’s advance features such as macros, lookup functions, array formulas, pivot tables, and data management, yet fail to understand how to use them in the context of performing business analysis. Some do not even realise they are already building their own financial models for managing risk, planning projects, preparing business proposals, or evaluating opportunities. In a new book by Danielle Stein Fairhurst, ‘Using Excel® for Business Analysis: A Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals’ is dedicated to the principles of best modelling practice to help them save a lot of time, effort and anguish in the long run.
‘Using Excel® for Business Analysis: A Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals’ is designed for professionals of all backgrounds and levels of experience looking to become familiar with financial modelling, whether they are seeking to improve their skills to perform better in their current role, or getting a new and better job.
“When I started financial modelling in the early nineties, it was not called ‘financial modelling’—it was just “Using Excel for Business Analysis”, and this is what I’ve called this book,” says Stein Fairhurst, a Sydney-based consultant specialising in financial modelling and analysis. “It was only after the new millennium that the term ‘financial modelling’ gained popularity and became a required skill often listed on analytical job descriptions,” she said.
‘Using Excel® for Business Analysis: A Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals’ presents the key strategies for minimising errors, rebuilding an inherited model and offers other techniques for ensuring accurate robust models. It also covers the often-neglected task of presenting model output—the area where many modellers spend days or weeks on the calculations and functionality—to judge the usefulness of the model.
‘Using Excel® for Business Analysis: A Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals’ is a concise, step-by-step guide that presents how a spreadsheet can fulfill a variety of purposes, for example, setting out a business case, evaluating potential opportunities, or building reports and models using Excel. It covers both the essential concepts behind financial modelling and the practicalities of performing complex analysis.
