Most supply chain logistics professionals use Microsoft Excel in their work. Yet most people in business have little or no formal training in Excel, meaning they’re overlooking many efficiencies, quality control mechanisms, and data analysis methods – among other things.
Now, over the next year, CITT is offering a suite of seminars presented live but online for busy people like you. Each of these acclaimed seminars is taught by an expert instructor with content based on over 20 years of experience delivering Excel training and implementing feedback from working professionals. Regardless of your skill level, you’ll learn something valuable. And a recording of each seminar will be provided to the attendees - so you can go back and review what you've learned.
All sessions take place from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM EST.
PivotTables are widely considered the most powerful feature in Excel, yet most supply chain logistics professionals do not use them in their day-to-day activities. If you are ready to learn how to take advantage of PivotTables or how to extend your existing knowledge of PivotTables, then you should make time to participate in this course. In this program, you will learn how to build PivotTables, how to group data inside PivotTables – including grouping options for fiscal periods – and how to create user-defined calculations in your PivotTables. You will also learn advanced PivotTable techniques, including how to build PivotTables that consolidate data from multiple data ranges and PivotTables dynamically connected to external databases and financial accounting systems.
