Workshop: Skills & Drills: Building Pivot Tables Using Microsoft Excel

All 6 members of the CharterLeader cohort learned to build Micorosft Excel Pivot Tables (concise data summaries built using a "drag & drop" approach).

We delivered a customized "skills and drills" training session that used the following "disaggregated" data set ...


 ... to produce the following Pivot Table ...

Team members were then challenged to build their "skill" by completing a "drill" that involved using progressively larger versions of the dataset above.

Using larger data sets helps to build a user's appreciation for the accuracy, efficiency, and simplicity with which Pivot Tables are constructed - no matter how much data needs to be summarized!

To probe further, please check out the tutorial video below that summarizes the workshop ...

Dear Hannah: Stand Your Ground (Take 2)


 

Dear Hannah,

Sometimes things happen that upset us. We have to feel what we feel, take the time to heal, remember what is real, and keep moving forward ...


As I lay me down to sleep
I kiss my wife and ponder deep

I wonder why, and that's OK 
Answers tomorrow are questions today 

Then I kneel and start to pray
Ask the Lord to have His way
Stay focused on a future day
Hope to keep all harm at bay

So my baby girl can play
Jump on me, yell "Daddy, yay!"
Play piano, dance ballet

Tell her about our wedding day
How to wait for her fiance'
Relationships begin with "hey"
Then take their course - la vie c'est

Do her work for more than pay
Know when to go, and when to stay

Correct her course if she should stray
See that this world is often cray

The brave are scared to disobey
But sometimes do it anyway
The fools rush in, the wise survey
Think twice, act once - avoid the fray

Accountable talk never starts with "they"
Power is more than being able to sway

Then I reach "amen" and rise again
Ready to embark, engage and win

Eyes wide shut, but with open heart
The game ain't fair, so play it smart

The road ahead is still paved with LIFE
Our seed is growing inside my wife

She can change the world if I maintain
Stay on my grind, and in my lane


Love,

Daddy

Dear Hannah,

Sometimes things happen that upset us. We have to feel what we feel, take the time to heal, remember what is real, and keep moving forward ...


As I lay me down to sleep
I kiss my wife and start to weep

I cry my cry - and that's OK
The tears can help to wash away
Hurt and pain and disarray

Then I kneel and start to pray
Ask the Lord to have His way
Stay focused on a future day
Hope to keep all harm at bay

So my baby girl can play
Jump on me, yell "Daddy, yay!"
Play piano, dance ballet
