Your presentation should be a minimum of 10 minutes, with at least 13 slides used. Additionally, your presentation should be a culmination of your entire project addressing all aspects of your project (the history, purpose statement, research question, how the literature found supports your findings, what test you used and why, representation of data, what data means from a Manager/Leader perspective, and recommendations). Please follow APA formatting guidelines with at least two citations (in-text and reference list match) from peer-reviewed journals. PLEASE READ ATTACHED RUBRIC.
NOTE FROM PROFESSOR: “What I wanted to do is take a little bit of your time to speak with you about your final project. The final project is a presentation where you will be using a screen authoring program that will basically record your PowerPoint as you go through it as well as your audio. So there are tutorials that located to help you in learning the program. There are also tutorials in helping you upload at your Google Drive so you can share that URL with your instructor for final submission.
A couple of things that I want you to start think about as you start approaching the presentation is that it’s really important for you to be able to display what you discovered through out the last six weeks working within your project, in a very succinct way. So the presentation allows you to be able to show your expertise of what you have learned.
It’s important when you are putting together your presentation that you do not clog you slides, you use the five by five rule. You do not read your slides, you are basically using your slides as guides. So it allows your audience to be able to focus be able what you are saying by using the visuals that you’ve given in front of them.
And think of the visuals that go as far as displaying your data, different ways to show what that data means which is really important when you start sitting in within your position as a leader and a manager to say, all right how do I affect effectively present this information to either a board, my CEO or my employees. So this presentation covers a lot of different grounds to not only show how good you are and how knowledgeable you are on the topic you have just studied, but to go above and beyond to allow to hone those skills at being a good presenter and allowing you to be able to find your style, what is appropriate for you.”
