Written in a clear, easy and "user friendly" style, this book will meet the requirements of managers who wish to use LOTUS 1-2- 3 but have had no previous experience of spreadsheets. It assumes only that the reader has a reasonable knowledge of management techniques. Rather than producing another user's guide to LOTUS - already provided in a comprehensive and well written manual - 'Creative Modelling with LOTUS 1-2-3' focuses throughout on the practical applications for solving "real life" business problems. As one of the new generation of spreadsheets the size and flexibility of LOTUS enables it to be used as a 'decision support system' and as management information system. To get the most out of LOTUS 1-2-3 - beyond the simple spreadsheet data base package - the accompanying disk provides the user with data files of sufficient size and complexity to simulate "Real Life" situations and answer many of the "What If" questions that arise every day.
