Often we set lofty goals for ourselves but get overwhelmed by how we can possibly get all of It done, or if we are actually making any progress towards these goals after all of this effort. Both of these concerns can be overcome by creating a goal spreadsheet to track our goals, our progress towards them and the tasks needed to get to these goals. It is easy to set up a goals spreadsheet and it can make achieving the goals much more efficient. Know your goals Before you can start to create an effective goals spreadsheet you first must know your goals. I know this sounds simplistic, but if you do not know where you are heading the goals spreadsheet will be unable to get you there. If you do not know your destination the map is irrelevant, if you are driving from Chicago to St. Louis a map of the East coast cannot help you. The map is only as good as the final destination the map is designed to direct you towards.

The most important thing I always keep in mind when creating a new Excel work book or worksheet is I NEVER assume that I will not want to add in new formulas or data to the spreadsheet because it is more than likely I will. With this is the forefront of your mind I would always spend around 80% of my time planning the spreadsheet and only 20% of my time implementing it. If you have not carried out spreadsheet design in this way before it may seem a little over the top, extreme or way out, or even inefficient, but the return on the investment of this time planning is extreme and way out also. Believe me it is quickly paid back over a very short amount of time. Once you have used this method and spend most of your time planning, the actual planning of the Excel spreadsheet in itself gets easier and more efficient. As we know the best return of investment to is to carry out an action once, and then reap the rewards over and over again by re using this action. In Excel an obvious example would be to create a macro that automates some activity you carry out on a regular basis or to create a template that will be re- used time and time again. This is my aim with this approach to spreadsheet building. To really plan the spreadsheet, and dont be afraid to spend a decent amount of time on it. My advice to you would be try this out on your next spreadsheet even if it seems a bit alien. Let me know how you find this approach to spreadsheet building.

The idea of two or more people bound by a common interest can be traced to mans earliest endeavors. More recently, and thanks to the growth of the Web, thousands of "communities" have sprung up to serve people with specific hobbies, interests, or political leanings. The advent of Web 2.0 technology has led to hosted communities where members can interact with people of mutual interests. Sites like My Space and Facebook were among the first to exploit the Internet community concept. For the most part, these sites are geared toward consumers and individuals who interact in their personal time. But what about business? Is the concept of community relevant to them? Absolutely - in spades!

For the purposes of this article, I selected six criteria by which to make the comparison. These were selected from the feedback of customers and prospects as well as learning what is important for the successful adoption and implementation of project tools within an organization. Data Mining Data mining is a huge part of project management tools. The whole reason for having a tool is to collect data, so that you can look intelligently at that data, make sure your processes are performing as advertised, and make good decisions. You need to know which projects and tasks are slipping through the cracks so that you again react. You need to know when you will not have enough resources to meet demand so that you can allocate them properly or manage the demand. You need to know which issues are lurking so that you can address them now before you lose the favor of a critical customer. And you need to see how your processes are working so that you can continuously improve your processes.

The system that supported five people is starting to break down under the strain of 30 people. A new type of thinking must be applied to streamline the companys operations and automate them - again. This time, the system will be larger, will take longer to design (or purchase), and cause more of a disruption in company operations when it is implemented. What happens internally when a system no longer meets the needs of the busy employees? They start creating workarounds to get their job done... and often their solutions involve spreadsheets. And so, the spreadsheet culture is reborn and the cycle begins again. The need for new and/or different systems to support a companys growth is not avoidable. Just plan to address them before the pain at each juncture is so great that your people start leaving for a company that has better, more efficient systems in place. When you do start this planning phase, be sure to use experts that are not tied to a particular solution. You know the old saying... When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Spreadsheet bid calculators are evolving through years of trial and error by individuals designing their own spreadsheets due to cost and affordability, which is a viable option for them if they have time to design these spreadsheets. Large contracting firms compile their constructions bids using expensive standalone programs, because they have proven platforms with a record of accuracy. Spreadsheet calculators deliver detailed bids to the user with excellent results and without the high operating cost of expensive programs. Spreadsheet calculators when placed on a laptop give contractors flexibility to estimate small projects and/or large projects on construction projects. Contractors waste valuable time and money returning to the office with the clients project information just to calculate the bid, then return to deliver the clients bid. Spreadsheet calculators calculate the required 10% overage on materials, including the contractors pricing structure for labor/material/equipment designed in the calculator.
