Step Four
Interpreting the Results


The Model updates every time you press the ‘Run Scenario’ Button

With each run - any variable that is changed in value is coloured Yellow so it is easily identified

Each variable block shows:

The name of variable

Column 1: The years being used

Column 2: The base case - that is, the actual value for the start year and base case forecast value for the selected future year, the extent to which the variable changes in absolute value between those two years and the Compound Average Growth rate (CAGR) for that period

Column 3: The base case and then the revised value for the future year (in yellow if different from the base case), the absolute change from the start year and CAGR.
