Are you ready to Excel? Microsoft Excel, that is! Many tasks are well suited to Excel, including managing budgets, tracking project deliverables, and creating forms. Join us to learn more about how Excel can be used in your work, and get curious about exploring the range of features that this software offers. Because budget management includes coordinating with people and data, we’ll also look at the range of inputs that are involved in tracking budgets. Who do you need to work with to track expenses? What kind of reporting will you need to be able to support, and what types of checks and balances can you put in place to create an accountable process?
Participants will learn to:

Use Excel features to analyze data
Explore free Excel templates
