Some businesses are highly complex whereas other businesses have a simple business model and very few employees. If you see your doctor for a personal health check they will start off with some standard tests and progress to more detailed tests if required. It is the same with businesses, there are significant similarities between most businesses so much so that standard health checks can be performed on almost any business. It is possible to run a business health check based on benchmarks from similar businesses.

Microsoft Excel is a fantastic tool for analyzing scientific data. Microsoft Word is a fantastic tool for writing up scientific research. So surely Microsoft Office is the only software a scientist would ever require beyond that associated with specialist scientific apparatus? Unfortunately, that has never been the case and most university researchers would identify one big problem with the Office suite and that is why it‘s always been difficult to present formulas in Word and Excel. Even when you type a simple fraction like 3/5, it gets presented on a single line. As for Greek symbols like pi...well, that would mean many hours wasted trawling through Excel‘s Insert Symbol menu.
