We’re living in an age where torture by powerpoint happens in every meeting and death by powerpoint happens in every third meeting. I have come to realise a very simple truth. Most recipients hate long presentations but make the same mistake when they write a presentation. Today I had a very good client meeting and the entire 30 slide presentation was actually presented through one key slide. It was simple and clear so the client finally said just give me this one slide. I believe future of communication is in brevity and Nano Presentations will win over Mega Presentations.
Last 12-18 months have been tough for most businesses and we have seen wide scale redundancies in jobs. Most analysts & observers are so much focused on corporates cutting people in order to reduce costs. But I’m surprised to see that most organizations pay no attention to processes and making them redundant based on their level of importantance. In my observations people continue to follow processes & generate reports as if it is business as usual… and that too with lesser people. We should be thinking about Process Redundancies and develop a 3-6-9 months roadmap to get rid of unnecessary processes that cost us time, efforts and hence money.
