Businesses depend on accurate and reliable information presented in a meaningful format to assist management and teams to make effective business decisions.

Whether it's the MANCO report, EXCO report, sales report or finance report, the information contained is often critical for determining the company's future direction.

However, surprisingly few people have had any kind of formal training to equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to deliver and enhance the information so critical to business success.

In order to assist PAs and administrators to master the skills required, BizTech is offering a course on "Graphs, Statistics and Numerical Reporting for PAs and Administrators". 


The course covers the following topics:

  • When should you use which kind of graph (Bar chart, line, pie, etc)

  • Data manipulation so that you only use what you want to use through sorting and filtering

  • Showing targets vs actuals on a graph

  • Developing templates so that updates are quick and easy

  • Allowing for "what if?" scenarios

  • Designing graphs to show trends and seasonality

  • Designing graphs to show variances
