August 23: Microsoft Excel Basics
Every organization wants to be "data-driven"... but few are able to accomplish that goal consistently. For politics, well-managed data is an especially valuable asset for campaigns, brands, and organizations.
Microsoft Excel is one of the world's most powerful and established programs used to process large quantities of data -- provided you know how to use it correctly.
Get an introduction to data organization and databases in Microsoft Excel, designed for people in non-technical fields. No previous knowledge or experience is required.
This information-packed training will teach you how to navigate Microsoft Excel confidently. Specifically, you will learn:
- how to recognize and use different types of data fields;
- how to identify “clean” data, and how to “clean" an existing data set;
- different ways to create useful charts and graphs; and,
- how formulas and modeling can drive data-driven decision making.
The training ends at 1pm Eastern / Washington D.C. time.
