The FAST and the Furious

Are you furious? Are you spending your days staring at spreadsheets trying to work out what the hell is going on?

There was a time I would spend many hours unpicking detailed formulae, trying to work out why the numbers coming out of my model did not look right, usually under extreme pressure, usually at 2am the night before a bid.

This used to drive me mad. It was an inevitable part of my life as an analyst / financial modeller. That was just how it was.

Excel gave me a huge range of complex formulae and lord knows. I would use them all.

And then, my life changed. I discovered the FAST Standard.

The FAST Standard gave me clarity and simplicity. It gave me a structured framework to apply to my modelling. All of a sudden I wasn’t mad any more (except at the guys who kept changing the inputs at the last minute – you know who you are).

If you would like to know more about the FAST standard, click here or connect with me and I’d be happy to share my experience.
