Data Management with Excel and Tableau(Intermediate)
Let’s face it – Microsoft Excel is the choice of many a project manager, and its usage far overruns all others, including MS Project. It is the only tool that is acceptable to Finance and other peripheral functions.
Being a part of “Office”, we tend to be self-taught, and consequently, end up frustrated.
So why not learn about some useful tips and tricks through common scenarios?
The material for this class is derived from the common yet significant “use cases” and mistakes that instructors have observed in their careers.
