The Good and Bad of PowerPoint Slides


How do I love thee? How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways...

Today on, Steven B. Levy wrote about what PowerPoint is good for, and not so good for:
"I’ve seen many successful projects perceived as troubled simply because the project manager couldn’t 'manage' a presentation."

"In a project management presentation, PowerPoint (or its equivalent) is good for two things, and two things only:
  • Visuals, and
  • Signposts
It is a very poor tool for the purpose most people use it: transmission of information."
Not that I have ever, ever made any of the mistakes listed.
