Spreadsheet Accountability Tip #2


A spreadsheet is not just a tool that calculates numbers and manipulates data. It's a means of communication that often lies at the heart of a company's well-being. Use with caution.

Be aware that everyone who reviews your spreadsheet does so with their own set of assumptions. Avoid costly misunderstandings by reporting your assumptions up front, preferably on the spreadsheet itself. Putting this information on the spreadsheet--instead of in an email or presentation deck--helps ensure the spreadsheet is understood even if it's viewed in isolation.
