Spreadsheet Design Standards

Now this is interesting. I remember searching a few years back for spreadsheet design patterns. That combination of keywords never led me to the Best Practice Modeling Standards upon which BPM – a company founded in 2002 by ex-Salomon Smith Barney investment bankers – provides its modeling products and services. The base version is apparently maintained by an independent Spreadsheet Standards Review Board:

Spreadsheet Standards Review Board Charter

  1. To promote the Best Practice Spreadsheet Modeling Standards to ensure that the Best Practice Spreadsheet Modeling Standards are recognized, used and accepted as the highest professional spreadsheet modeling standards in the world;
  2. To develop and maintain the Best Practice Spreadsheet Modeling Standards;
  3. To bring together global Spreadsheet modeling skills in order to develop and maintain the Best Practice Spreadsheet Modeling Standards;
  4. To facilitate and manage participation of interested parties and the general public in developing the Best Practice Spreadsheet Modeling Standards; and
