PowerPoint Assignment

For this project, you will be given a scenario in which you will need to conduct research, suggest a course of action, and develop a 12- to 15-slide PowerPoint presentation of your charts and graphs.

Scenario

You have been asked to present your data findings and decision-making modeling to the leadership panel for feedback prior to the stakeholder meeting presentation. The panel wants to preview the charts and graphs that will be included in your presentation based on the research you have conducted. They would like to see how you will use the data to inform your recommendation and how you will tell the story of that data.

Goals

Here are your main goals for this project:

· Prepare a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the charts and graphs you will use to persuade stakeholders that your diversification plan will solve the problem your industry is facing.

· Choose and explain the decision-making process your company will use to implement your diversification strategy.

Instructions for Part 1

In Part 1, you will create a PowerPoint presentation that does the following:

1. Presents graphs and charts describing the current state of and emerging trends within both the automotive manufacturing industry and the new industry.

2. Discusses what each graph or chart tells us about these industries.

3. Summarizes the collective data about both industries as a whole and what the data in the charts and graphs does and does not tell us about these industries and the problem you are trying to solve through diversification.

Slide 1: Title/Introduction

· Create a title for your presentation and add notes about what you’ll say out loud when this slide appears.

· Speaker Notes should answer questions: Why are you making this presentation? What do you hope to accomplish?

 

Slide 2: Sales by Region-Auto Industry

In Slide 2, you will tell the story of your data visualization on sales by region. Start by finding the graph or chart you want to use on this slide. Then consider what is the main point that you want to emphasize about this visualization. For example, looking at the chart or graph, does one region clearly dominate sales? If so, do you want to emphasize that in the title? Is this dominance potentially problematic due to new state-level regulations? If so, you might describe the new regulations in the speaker notes. If no region dominates, describe that trend in the speaker notes and its consequences for the industry or your proposal.

 

Draft Slides 3 through 11, which will present your data visualizations

For each slide:

1. Find the graph or chart you will use to cover the topic.

2. Draft a title for the slide.

3. Draft your speaker notes. Be sure to describe the main trend you want your audience to notice in the visualization (the graph or chart you’ll be including on the slide), then explain the significance for your company’s future growth and your diversification plan.
