Project and programme reporting using conventional business tools, such as Excel, can place your organisation at risk

Image
Are conventional business tools, such as Excel, placing your organisation at risk?
We know the importance of accurate reporting, the implications of getting it wrong can be hugely costly. Conventional methods using standard business tools, such as Excel, have a valuable place and purpose but its inability to control access, distribution and versioning has always been a challenge. As a result, project teams spend huge amounts of time trying to collate and make sense of this information. Not only is this inefficient and costly but it also allows for human error.
