Ray Panko has started an open group project to develop a
framework for thinking about spreadsheets in research and corporate
management. As a start, he proposes a six‐level framework ranging from
the broadest level (the external environment level) to the narrowest
(the individual spreadsheet
level). He wants to discuss whether this framework appears to be a good starting off point.
Rickard Wärnelid's recent discussion of that title has such analogies as
Berlin (before 1989), Germany “The financial model has been built by two different modellers, with a minimum of interaction and zero integration. One half is has a strong structural integrity and the other half excels in creativity and beautiful formatting”
... which somewhat reminds me of the saying "this book has much that is novel and correct. Unfortunately what is novel is not correct and what is correct is not novel"
What if a spreadsheet was like Dublin? I guess it would be user-friendly but poorly formatted and dull.
