Deelnemers vertellen over de cursus Integrated, interactive & intelligent Excel Models

‘This course teaches you to simplify your work. It makes you rethink your work method’ 

 

"This course teaches you to simplify your work. It makes you rethink your work method. Therefore, it was good that the course is completed with an assignment. It makes you start applying what you have learned. 

Now I would not want to work in any other way. I³BAR makes presenting figures on the board a pleasant experience. I recently saw a poltician on TV who was searching nervously in his papers during a parliamentary debate. If only you had done the i³BAR-course, I thought."

Angela van Os, Controller at Anthura

‘Frustration with working in Excel was actually my starting point as a participant in the i³BAR course’ 

 

"Frustration with working in Excel was actually my starting point as a participant in the i³BAR course. My relationship with Excel is double edged. It is a convenient flexible tool that I use a lot. At the same time it’s slow. When I saw the i³BAR sample report in the course, I was immediately impressed. It is beautiful, interactive and fast. 

Because of the simple formulas and the uniform system, the Excel Reports are easier for others to understand. This is extremely convenient. You are spared the effort of providing clarifications later on."

Naomi Uchibori, Financial Accountant at Dawn Food Products

‘I'd rather spend my time on the business than to maintain all kinds of models and reports’ 

 

"This is one of the most practical courses I have ever taken. Initially the words 'interactive intelligence’ triggered my interest. When the instructor, Elaine, showed us in the first 15 minutes what the tool can do, I was immediately convinced.

The beauty of i³BAR is that it revolves around a different mindset. You ask the business which drivers they find important. What are the variables and what the end result should look like? That appealed to me tremendously. As a controller, I'd rather spend my time on the business than to maintain all kinds of models and reports."

Esther Veerman, Financial Controlling Manager at Bavarian Nordic

‘If you know the possibilities of i3BAR, you can only embrace it as a finance professional’ 

 

'Creating interactive dashboards is time consuming, and even if you are proud of it, it remains an Excel sheet. In the i³BAR course you learn to tailor reports that look nice, are interactive and also to use and maintain by someone who is not an Excel guru.

For the final test, I created a model that I use every month to inform the management. The divisional and senior management found it fantastic. Earlier I could make the reports interactive, but now it also looks very slick'
