Portable Training Class!
This interactive instructional CD shows how to use RISKOptimizer to solve a wide range of business problems. The models and examples on the CD were developed by Wayne Winston, and are based on real-life scenarios. They have been used by Fortune 500 companies and are designed for advanced undergraduates, MBAs, and most of all practicing finance and operations professionals.
The instructor walks you through step by step how to solve each problem. The approach is practical and hands-on, without long-winded theory. Your instructor works as he speaks, so it's like having a tutor on your own computer!
Customise Your Learning
All example models are included on the CD, so you can try them yourself. These Excel spreadsheets may be modified and copied to suit your own needs. The material is broken up into lessons and subsections, allowing you to jump to just those topics you are most interested in. The instruction runs off the CD, so you can take it anywhere.
A users manual is also included in PDF format. This guide includes a statistical review
and the step-by-step examples from the CD. Example Excel files are also included so
you can experiment with them and adapt them to your own needs.
