Thanks to Coert Visser for the link to the Evidence Based Management website. I’ve enjoyed the work of Professors Pfeffer and Sutton over the years.
Their Hard Facts book provides good evidence to dispel some of our persistent management myths.
The website’s guest column, from Associate Professor Abela, gives us
10 principles for evidence-based presentation design, grouped into two themes:
– spend more time perfecting the content and
– spend less time embellishing.
Its just-in-time information for a workshop on Presenting and Meeting Management Skills that I’m updating at the moment, so I’ll get back to work on the content to make sure it’s perfect!
