Analyzing Job Profitability Video Series

Analyzing Job Profitability Video Series

This series of videos is based on the seminar “Analyzing Job Profitability using Microsoft Excel” developed and presented by Larry Wendt. The seminar deals with the concepts and methods of analyzing data such as job profitability as well as specific Excel techniques to actually do a quality analysis of job profitability.

The videos were selected from a presentation of the seminar given at the offices of the
ASA Chicago

The Excel spreadsheet used in the seminar is available for purchase for $100 by calling Syscon at 800-545-2012. The spreadsheet contains all the formulas and techniques described in the seminar.
