It will appeal to participants with experience in market analysis and highest and best use and also those with experience in applying inferred market analysis. The focus is on problem solving and efficiency while uncovering some of the tools of the spreadsheet program that will make an analysis stronger and increase productivity. Participants will find the applications especially helpful in the areas of market analysis, feasibility analysis, and highest and best use. Gain techniques to solve real-world problems and develop best practices in modeling that can be applied in other situations.
