Product Description

With every major choice we face we "run through the numbers" to guide our decision-making and legitimise the outcomes. Financial modelling helps managers to make more informed decisions and, crucially, win corporate commitment for those decisions. The ability to construct useful financial models with speed and accuracy is becoming a key skill for all executives to master.

However, this is a skill few managers and businesses know how to develop. For the busy executive or finance officer, an Excel user-manual is no place to start - today's financial models have moved a long way from the original single-sheet spreadsheets that most of us feel comfortable manipulating. Modern spreadsheets allow advanced managers to adopt advanced decision-making and analysis tools, but few have time or programming skills to use the spreadsheets to the full. This book will show managers how they can extend their decision-making capabilities by mastering the use and abuse of financial models.


This is the ultimate book and disk combination that will help finance professionals and business students alike to become more proficient in building Microsoft Excel models and applying corporate finance concepts.
