And as in most professional disciplines, you can tell the experts apart from the novices by the creativity they bring to the craft. Now with Steve Powell and Ken Baker’s The Art of Modeling with Spreadsheets, you can master the technical knowledge as well as those essential craft skills needed to develop real expertise in business modeling. You’ll learn: <div>Effective methods for designing, building, and testing models, and for performing model-based analyses;</div> <div>Non-technical, craft skills that expert modelers commonly employ, such as abstracting a situation, debugging a model, and translating model results into managerial insights; and</div> <div>Standard statistical and management science techniques used in business today, such as data analysis, simulation, and optimization.</div>
