This is an introduction to building spreadsheet models and using them for effective business decision-making. It explains the problem-solving process—frame the problem, diagram the problem, build a model, and generate insights—and presents specific modeling tools, such as influence diagrams, spreadsheet engineering, parameterization, sensitivity analysis, strategy analysis, and iterative modeling, to achieve this, and describes the software packages used.
