Once you have goals set for your presentation, you need to break down how you can create it in stages. This helps you craft your presentation well and in an organized fashion.
- [Instructor] One of the greatest successes … in industry was Henry Ford, … who invented the assembly line. … The thought went that if the individual worker … focused truly on the task at hand, … they could be more productive, … and then the car would move down the assembly line … to the next worker who tackled his job or her job … as a specialist. … Well, this logic can be applied to presentations as well. … I don't mean that you have to hand … the project off to another user, … although you certainly could, … or involve them during the quality control stage, … but by narrowing your focus … you'll find that you're much more productive. … I sometimes see that people build a presentation … as they go through each slide. … They're dropping in all the pictures, … they're animating, … they're doing everything to take it from zero to 60 … in under two or three seconds. … Now, perhaps that's a slight exaggeration, … but not that much. … The problem here is if you become so focused … on crossing the finish line you can lose consistency. …
