Twenty principles for good spreadsheet practice

Twenty principles for good spreadsheet practice

17 November 2013

There have been countless posts on IT Counts and the Excel Community about the risks of poorly designed spreadsheets and the time that can be wasted by inefficient use of spreadsheets.

The IT Faculty is publishing what we hope will be a major contribution towards addressing those problems, and now is your chance to improve our 'public consultation draft', by providing feedback here.

Over the past several months a dozen or so 'spreadsheet gurus' – the term is meant as a compliment ­– have been debating what ought to be our 'Twenty Principles of Good Spreadsheet Practice'.

So this posting is part of our 'public exposure' of the Spreadsheet Principles. Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome!
