Every week, the same batch of spreadsheets is being mailed and reconciled manually. Once it’s done, I have to refresh my pivot tables to generate the correct Excel graphs. It takes at least 2 days to do all this work. This must be something that can be automated!

I need to rely on an expert from the automation or IT team to develop a new solution, which could take weeks or even months! Maybe it’s not even worth the effort?

Explaining the requirements in detail to someone who probably doesn’t understand the work I do

Once the new solution is developed, every time it doesn’t work, it needs to be fixed

The future

With new tools and training, I can solve my own problems and help my colleagues be more successful. I get a lot of time back and I feel like I’m adding more value to my team!

Exploring different ideas on my own without needing outside help
