Past research shows that spreadsheet models are prone to such a high frequency of errors and data security implications that the risk management of spreadsheet development and spreadsheet use is of great importance to both industry and academia. The underlying rationale for this paper is that spreadsheet training courses should specifically address risk management in the development process both from a generic and a domain-specific viewpoint. This research specifically focuses on one of these…

Establishing and Measuring Standard Spreadsheet Practices for End-Users
TLDR
It is considered how establishing standard practices in spreadsheet training and certification can help reduce some of the risks associated with spreadsheets, and help promote productivity.

Teaching spreadsheet development using peer audit and self-audit methods for reducing error
TLDR
A teaching approach has been devised which aids students to reduce their likelihood of making common errors during development by educating students in a set of structured, transferable skills for spreadsheet error-checking which are useful for increasing error-awareness in the classroom and for reducing business risk in the workplace.
An Investigation of the Incidence and Effect of Spreadsheet Errors Caused by the Hard Coding of Input Data Values into Formulas
TLDR
The development of an automated (electronic) means for detecting such hard coding is described together with a discussion of some results obtained through analysis of a number of student and practitioner spreadsheet models.
Quality Control in Spreadsheets: A Visual Approach using Color Codings to Reduce Errors in Formulae
TLDR
The framework for spreadsheet quality control is mainly aimed at addressing the widespread problem of errors in spreadsheet formulae, and two approaches are considered herein.
Information Integrity in End-User Systems
TLDR
Many errors occurring in end-user applications such as spreadsheets that are not developed under formal system development guidelines are due to an education process that concentrates on teaching ‘how to do things correctly’ but ignores ‘ how to avoid doing things incorrectly’.
Spreadsheet Errors: What We Know. What We Think We Can Do
TLDR
To date, only one technique, cell-by-cell code inspection, has been demonstrated to be effective, and the degree to which other techniques can reduce spreadsheet errors needs to be determined.
