This post is a preview of things to come. As I’ve looked at what I want to write about I realized that some of the posts would be interconnected. So, this is a quick introduction to what I’m planning.
You’re going to have to work with data if you want to be able to show people what their numbers mean. And computers seem to record everything, so you’ll need to be able to work with large amounts of data.
Your goal is to know what causes fluctuations in expected results, what lies ahead and what can be done to improve things. In a nutshell you want to know what’s generating profits and what’s generating losses. In my coming posts I’ll talk about how you can look at your data to find out this information and what you can do with it.
