I would like to present the following recommendations to my
company on the use of spread sheet use,
The first step is to
evaluate the use of spread sheets in the business that whether these sheets are
used by clerical staff or the higher hierarchy still uses the same tool to
present their workings.
Second comes the measure of
magnitude the information in spread sheet has on company policies &
decisions and then made the required protocols as if it is used by clerical
staff an overview of information will be enough but if it is used by the higher
hierarchy, thorough review will be necessary before made it public.
The size of organization is critical before
taking any decision as larger the organization the more is the need of a
developed system (program) than the adoption of these spread sheets.
The proper training and
implementations of spread sheet use protocols is also important for the staff
that could avoid the mistake when information is entered and saved in these
sheets. This could include the use of a strict password protected sheets across
the company that will eliminate the risk of unauthorized access to these
The above mentioned protocols seem to increase the workload
of company resources but are very important for the protected processing of
company information with maximum level of accuracy that is importance in
current competitive business world.
