We’re passionate about the work we do, and at times we can get a bit extreme. We’ve been known to throw the phrase “death to spreadsheets” around the office.
So it doesn’t really surprise me to see that some people are equally passionate on the other side of spreadsheets. Wall Street Journal recently ran a couple of stories about Excel—one on CFOs telling their teams to stop using it and a follow-up on the uproar the first story caused.
The lesson? People don’t love being told to change their process.
