The risk exposure associated with spreadsheets can be enormous – perhaps one of the greatest risks that exists within an organization. Let’s face it, just about anyone can create a spreadsheet with little to no knowledge on proper design techniques, which in turn leads to errors. This course focuses on ways to control and reduce the risk of spreadsheet errors. We will explore specific procedures that EVERY organization should implement when creating spreadsheets.
