Are you afraid that your job may disappear in the next couple of years with the explosion of Big Data and AI?
Are you using Excel regularly in your work but feeling frustrated spending long hours making those reports for your boss?
Then this message is for you.
Hi, I'm Chris Chua,
the headmaster of DefeatExcel
When I first joined the workforce, I find that the truth to be shocking…
Employers heard of the prowess of Microsoft Excel, and assume that we know just about everything Excel. They forgot that Excel never found its way into our 10+ years of formal education, and most of us picked up Excel on our own.
Almost every job demands for Excel know-how, but few spend time to learn how to use this program better. Excel becomes the fearful monster that eats up our time at work.
We either waste a lot of time trying to (1) do repetitive things manually, or (2) Google for “how to do X in Excel”. Late nights were common especially when bosses want us to make changes to our spreadsheets.
Early this year, strategic advisory firm NewVantage Partners conducted a survey on Fortune 1000 organizations. The research suggests that 91.6% of Fortune 1000 companies are increasing Big Data and AI-related investments, with 91.7% of respondents saying that investment is required to stay both agile and competitive.
To cope with the trend of increasing data, there is a strong NEED to be equipped with basic data science skills. It is NO LONGER a luxury to choose if you want to pick up such skills. Similar to Fortune 1000 companies, either we invest in ourselves to stay competitive or we face extinction.
And Microsoft Excel is the first step of this transformation.
Excel is widely used in most organizations and offers a great range of tools and features to cope with simple to intermediate data analysis needs. Repetitive tasks such as reporting can be automated. Report templates can be created just once, and then you can simply re-use them over and over again — saving time as well as reducing errors.
DataCraft is the premium data analysis online course created specifically for working professionals. You will learn important data science mindset and skills to perform data analysis quickly, so that you can make sense of the data you have.
