In this module, you will examine sample data sets that you can use to practice critical skills and activities. You will identify the ways that you can format data to be visually appealing and digestible, and you will participate in a discussion about how you will use applied logic to answer critical questions. You will explore functions in Excel, including using Nested IF statements.
In order to make the most informed business decisions, you need to be able to compare data quickly and efficiently. Logical operators help you do this by comparing data from cell to cell.
Oftentimes the Boolean result of true or false will not be the best-fit response you desire in order to inform your business decisions. Nested IF statements use logic that can transform your previously ambiguous results and give you a more well-defined outcome depending on your analysis needs.
Organized data sets with visual appeal provide the most benefits to us and to our readers. Conditional formatting is vital to improving visual clarity and can provide quick cues or indicators about what the data is showing. There are many different formatting options for you to add flavor and clarity to your data sets.
How can you apply logic to the data you work with to make decisions more efficiently?
Create a post in which you offer one or two specific ideas of how you will put the strategies in this module into action in your work today.
