As many of you are aware, we are running a series of posts on Presentation Management. This has been possible with support from AlexAnndra Ontra and James Ontra, who have permitted us to serialize their book. Additionally, some value addition to the content is being done to add visuals, videos, excerpts, and more so that we can bring you a more interactive format.

Here are all the posts published so far. We will update this list when new posts are added.

In the last post in this series, we looked at how important compliance is in presentation management. And in this post, we explore how components of presentation management can help you achieve availability of content seamlessly, everyday.

Presentation management balances both sides of the enterprise: the high-level corporate brand and objectives with the everyday tasks of the employees out in the field — the folks whose day-to-day tasks are what actually build the business. Presentation management makes enterprise files available for everyday use and vice versa. It’s like a merger of content. To achieve this requires three key components:

  1. Cloud-based technology that can store, update and track presentations;
  2. Analytics and machine learning that can recognize patterns in and the effectiveness of presentations; and
  3. A cultural shift toward thinking about presentations differently.

These components, when combined, will change the nature of presentations in your organization.

In the last post in this series, we looked at how presentation management can increase productivity. And in this post, we explore something that goes along with productivity: compliance.

Compliance can mean different things to different organizations:

  • In finance and pharma, it means that specific language and statements are disclosed in accordance with federal regulations. You must tell your customers “this” but you are not allowed to tell them “that.” What employees can and cannot say is regulated. And “who” can and cannot present certain material is also regulated. In finance, you must be a certified broker-dealer to sell investments. In pharma, you might need to be a medical doctor to educate other doctors about how to administer a particular drug.
  • In marketing, compliance means that you are staying true to the brand, which refers to the colors used, the logo treatment, the fonts and typography, even certain messages and taglines.

Presentation Management: The New Strategy for Enterprise ContentThis post is part of a series on Presentation Management, and is the eighth post in this series.

In the last post, we looked at how Presentation Management helps you evolve from One-and-Done to Enterprise Assets.

This set of serialized posts is based on original content, the Presentation Management: The New Strategy for Enterprise Content book, authored by AlexAnndra Ontra and James Ontra.

Make Your Content Productive

The core benefit of presentation management is the ability to create great content once, and then make it available to anyone in the organization to use over and over again. Typically, that content is a PowerPoint deck, but it could also be a video, PDF brochure, white paper or infographic. The format doesn’t matter. What matters is the ability to take any piece of content and unleash it across the organization.
