Microsoft Excel is still business critical. More than 30 years since its launch, it’s more popular than ever: one billion people use it.
A recent survey regarding the use of Excel indicates that workers use Excel for more than an hour every day, with finance and R&D professionals spending 2.5 and 3.0 hours a day respectively.
However, the study of 45,000 office workers revealed that, despite using Excel daily, major, fundamental knowledge gaps are the norm.
For example, these 45,000 workers only got 28 per cent got the Excel questions correct. Accountants, understandably confident at Excel, were only the 3rd most proficient group of professionals. Almost 50 per cent of the questions were answered incorrectly, even by top accountants!
