You may learn a few tricks, but the time and money spent could be invested elsewhere. Research shows that a large percentage of the skills learned in training courses are not retained. Will you really remember everything that you learn? A programme of continuous, applied learning is often more effective than an intensive training course. Are your Excel skills really the problem? Following best practices and mastering the logic behind a financial model are more important than building in complex formulas and, for the most part, you will want to keep formulas as simple as possible.

The issue of timing in annual models is one that I use often when demonstrating logic in my training workshops. If we are estimating the revenue for a new insurance product, and the assumption is that we acquire 30,000 customers every year, we can’t assume revenue for the full 30,000 customers, as not all of them will begin on the very first day of Year 1. Customers will be acquired gradually throughout the year, so we need to take an average in order to calculate revenue. This is an example of how it is very easy to get logic wrong, and overestimate revenue by a substantial amount.

The larger the size of the model and the scale of the project, the more up-front project planning will be required. This detailed process is simply to provide a framework in the absence of one; it should by no means make the process more complex or constrict it, and how closely you stick to the process will depend on the size and scale of the project. The 12 steps have been split into two stages: 1) planning, and 2) build. Planning Stage 1. Scope out the project. Assess what needs to be done in order to complete the model.
