The course is presented as a case study course
First, we start from building a short version Profit & Loss report based on system data. In this case, we teach students how to avoid hard-coded numbers and hard-linked sources in the report. Instead, we deploy some advanced formulas that make the report dynamic.
Second skill is about using pivot tables in reporting. It makes reporting much easier by slicing and dicing. This skill can differentiate rookies and gurus.
Third, we fine-tune the model by upgrading it into a dynamic model by including the assumption page, data page, reporting page, dashboard, and proof check.
Fourth, once reports are completed, we need to generate region-specific reports to distribute to regional managers. We can automate the whole report generating process through a programming language in Excel called VBA (Visual Basic Application).
Last, once we receive revised reports from regional managers, we need to consolidate them into the corporate P&L report. We teach methods at all levels: basic, intermediate and advanced.
