Advanced Excel Ninja

What is Advanced Excel “Ninja”?

Advanced Excel training participants across Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, New Delhi, Gurgaon, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune etc. ask us – What is “Advanced Excel Ninja”?

This is what we have to say:

For an experienced professional, it’s easier to work with different techniques and formulas of Excel in a “standalone” mode. E.g. Just VLookup() formula or Consolidate technique.

However, you will be able to extract the Ninja-level power from the different formulas and techniques, if you can nest different formulas together and combine various techniques. E.g. VLookup() + Match() with Indirect() and range naming will allow you to build a 3 dimensional lookup with Ninja-level data pull-up power.

With the aim of equipping with this Ninja-level power, we have developed 2-day workshop, which has been conducted at prestigious companies, including PwC, EY, ITC, Tata Power, Tata Sky, Birla Corporation etc.
