Excel Data Analysis

Forecasting

This course is part of a Learning Path (series of courses) called Become a Corporate Financial Planning Analyst.

Professor Wayne Winston has taught advanced forecasting techniques to Fortune 500 companies for more than twenty years. In this course, he shows how to use Excel's data-analysis tools—including charts, formulas, and functions—to create accurate and insightful forecasts. Learn how to display time-series data visually; make sure your forecasts are accurate, by computing for errors and bias; use trendlines to identify trends and outlier data; model growth; account for seasonality; and identify unknown variables, with multiple regression analysis. A series of practice challenges along the way helps you test your skills and compare your work to Wayne's solutions.
