Today on the blog I try something different. I want to see how people take a case study and respond to it. It’s a case study so there’s no right or wrong answer. Unless you answer wrongly of course.
A company wants to start improving their people’s ability to deliver presentations. They’ve noticed in team meetings, at board meetings and during project updates that presentations tend to be poorly delivered, lack structure and often with no clear information.
The company is a data driven company and their work is mostly on a business to business model. They win work based on the quality of the data they produce and the analytics they provide. One of the most regular pieces of feedback they receive is that the quality of their work is always impressive, however only a few people are able to talk through the results and deliver presentations. When someone new tries they often get caught up in being too detailed.
There are some people in the business who deliver presentations well. They are senior managers mostly and as such are relied on quite heavily for client presentations.
Internally they have modern tools to help them work well. They have a yammer network which they use to share stories about product development, project updates and seeking help from other colleagues. People are comfortable sharing an array of interesting articles and discussions are common.
