Have you ever seen the way highly productive foreign and listed companies work? They use Excel in every department, and thanks to that, they are able to achieve high productivity. Even if I say the use of Excel in one bite, it is probably a completely different dimension from the way you imagine using Excel by foreign companies.
Among those who are reading this, there may be not a few people who have used Excel for more than 10 years. But why have you been using it for so long and still haven’t gotten past the beginner’s level? This is because they know not Excel as a software or digital tool, but only in the same hardware as calculators and abacus. Most people use Excel only as little as a calculator with visualization of the calculation process. To say that you can use hardware but not software is the same as saying that you can add but not subtract, and if you do not learn how to use it digitally, no matter how much you memorize about Excel, you will not be able to get out of the realm of beginners.
However, if Excel can be used as software, unnecessary work can be reduced, and human error can be prevented in advance. In addition, you will be freed from the pressure of “don’t make a mistake” associated with manual work, the psychological weight will be removed, and resources in the brain will be freed. In other words, all complex calculations that humans are not good at will be able to be outsourced to Excel.
None of the above is just for foreign capital and large companies. There are many examples of using Excel to manage customers in a privately owned salon, and I think it is necessary for small businesses that have to manage their limited resources well.
You already use Excel every day, don’t you? Although the hurdle to introduction is low to using Excel, the effect of saving time and cost is enormous. It gives us more time and psychological space, so we can focus more on what only humans can do.
