2 Introduction PowerPoint Electronic Presentations PowerPoint Electronic Presentations are used widely in the business world as well as in higher education. Most employers, when asked by the Utah State Office of Education, said that with good word processing skills and spreadsheet skills a knowledge of electronic presentations is something that they want their employees to have.In the business world work is driven by information. Numbers on a page are important, but to get the information across to those who need it in a quick and efficient manner is done by visual representations so charts, graphics, and text in a presentation save time and improve understanding.
3 PurposeThe State Board of Education found that colleges and businesses want students and employees to be able to make and present an electronic presentation.Colleges use presentations for:ReportsProjectsBusinesses use presentations for:TrainingUniversities professors, more and more, require oral and visual presentations as well as writing for assignments. Businesses require employees to report and train using presentations also.It is important that your presentation be written well with good spelling and punctuation as well as good visual elements.No one wants to do business with a company whose advertisements, web pages, or communications have errors in them. People won’t do business with a company that doesn't look professional. And you don’t want to look dumb in front of your boss or college professor.Back in the 1970s when I managed three departments for a large department store I was required to report every two weeks to the store director and other department managers. Back then I had to use hand drawn charts on poster board and give out numbers reporting amount of sales, cost of goods sold, labor costs, projections of sales, items I wanted to put on adds for the week and how much my department would make on each sale item as well as where in the store I was going to put my displays. It would have been so much easier with a PowerPoint presentation.
