This Webcast provides finance professionals with the tools and techniques for building an effective corporate performance dashboard using Microsoft Excel.

During the session, Microsoft MVP Bill "MrExcel" Jelen provides step-by-step instructions on how to build a dashboard by incorporating Excel features such as Sparklines, pivot tables, icon sets -- and Excel 2013's Power View dashboard add-in. Learn how to embed a LOOKUP table into a formula, and work with conditional formatting and to create a dashboard that delivers key data in an easily digestible format.

During this Webcast, you will learn how to:

  • Use pivot tables with slicers;

  • Create conditional formatting to mark KPIs in the traffic-light colors of red, yellow or green;

  • Use dynamic labeling to indicate whether levels are good or poor;

  • Show trending, as well as performance versus target comparisons;

  • Group and bucket data; and

  • Create an interactive interface using sliders, slicers and other tools to drill down into the metrics.

Bonus: While Excel 2010 is used to demonstrate techniques during this webcast, participants will see a demo of the new Excel 2013 Power View dashboard add-in. You can use PowerView to create interactive dashboards that combine pivot charts, tables, pictures, maps and slicers in Excel 2013 Pro Plus.
