Our new friend Kevin Lehrbass, the host at mySpreadsheetLab.com joins us from Toronto, Canada.
Kevin is the Team Leader of Analytic Help Desk team for a consulting firm. His team answers questions related to Excel and Access. As a result, tons of questions come into the help line asking all types of Excel questions.
In this interview Kevin discusses how problems are assessed, differing limitations of the Excel product, and how he got involved in Excel.
Learning a foreign language? Passion? Necessity? Being able to explain a concept clearly? What are the additional things that make you an effective problem solver?
Oz mentions a Superbowl Analysis video by Kevin. This begins an entire conversation on how “closeness” can be defined. See Kevin’s video here.
Do you have an analytical mind? if so, what does that mean? Do you need to have confidence in your own work? Technical skills are probably less important having confidence in your ability to answer. Ultimately, you should have both.
What do you think makes an analyst? What makes you think of a problem differently? Share it with us and we’ll read it allowed on a future episode. And don’t forget to subscribe to our mailing list to get Excel trips, tricks, updates, and news directly to your inbox. What could be better?
