While creating a new sales report template, I found several old excel files I’ve created several years ago which I used for my own business, and if I tidy these files up, I think I can share it as useful excel templates for you. This SWOT analysis template is one of them. The original file is created using Microsoft Excel 2003, while I made some adjustment using Microsoft Excel 2010. I used this template when I plan to launch a new product and I wanted to measure its position among established companies who already exist in that business.

There are several requests within the last 4 months, since I released the Soccer League Creator template, about making the same kind of excel template but with tournament format. And I promised to those people that I will make it and try to release it by the beginning of this year. Up until the first ten days of this month, I haven’t started to make it, since I have been fully occupied with other projects. I have just started to create this Soccer Tournament Creator template on 11th January 2013 with the thought that it will take only a couple of days since I don’t have to create it from the scratch. What I have in mind, I just tried to make the Soccer League Creator template as the basic template, multiply and modify the worksheets to be used as group worksheets, add knock out phase worksheets from my Champions League and World Cup template and then finished.
But, it wasn’t that simple . It took more than 10 days to finish it, it took only 3 days to complete all the formula integration but it needed more than 7 days to finish the lay out and some more days to solve minor errors that came up when simulating the tournament.
Creating the template is not the same with creating the spreadsheet for myself. If I tried to make a spreadsheet for my own purposes, I will make it as simple as I could to ease my work, or as complex as I can so probably only me who understand the spreadsheet. But, in this case, I have try to understand what majority people want to do with the template and of course I have to see what Microsoft Excel can provide to make it happened. And, I have to make it as simple as possible so most of the people who download this template can use it without sending me tons of questions and finally just keep it as an unused file because the difficulties on using it.
