Attend this briefing on Excel to unleash its powerful sensitivity tools. Get the full power out of your financial models.

What if our projections are incorrect? How much variation can we live with when making decisions involving significant amounts of time, money and other resources? How can we express the degree of variation in the expected results current operations and future projects? How well do we quantify upside potential AND the downside risk in our decision making? We are constantly re-evaluating our actions. How do we know, up front and with certainty, we will be able to weather a decision gone bad? Financial modeling and forecasting from reasoned logic, realistic ranges for our significant variables and proper application of sensitivity testing should provide us with the answers to these questions.
