Turnmeyer – CIS331 – Assignment 2: Spreadsheet Modeling The spreadsheet is an enormously powerful and flexible tool. The term spreadsheet modeling covers a wide range of types of spreadsheet from simple calculations through to complex pieces of software designed to reflect complicated interactions, with macros to automate the process. It is used by almost every business organization in America. Almost every business decision is a back-up using a spreadsheet model, especially those with financial projections. Spreadsheet modeling is an effective and convenient way to structure your business analysis, decisions, and projections. Many people use spreadsheet models as mathematical models, but a spreadsheet is so much more than just your basic math spreadsheet. A spreadsheet is “a table of values arranged in rows and columns. Each value can have a predefined relationship to the other values.

These tools could be Lotus 1-2-3, Apple iWorks, or the most commonly used Microsoft Excel.
