MSOM Lunch and Learn Webinar Series


Most organizations provide their employees the Microsoft Office Tools Suite with Excel. The University of Arkansas Master of Science in Operations Management (MSOM) Program has included Excel as a foundational aspect of the program for the last 7 years. In that time, Microsoft has increased the Excel capabilities dramatically. Simultaneously, business intelligence analytics interest has increased, and Tableau has been created as a visual analytics platform to help users see and understand data for modern business intelligence. As a result, to support the Operations Manager the MSOM Program has developed a new course to present the additional tools and visualization techniques available in Excel and Tableau.

In this webinar, an overview of the new Advanced Decision Support Tools and Visualization for Operations Managers course will be discussed including topics about the:

    • Data tools,
    • Additional charts,
    • New data query techniques,
    • New analysis capabilities,
    • Templates and forms, and
    • Dashboards.
