Cliff AtkinsonUnfortunately it’s not just NASA and Boeing that find their cultures both reflected and crippled by this seemingly benign presentation graphics tool. Like huge mirrors hanging on the walls, PowerPoint is an open secret that lays bare the inner thoughts of every organization. For anyone who has the eyes to see, every title, bullet point, image, transition and animation reveals volumes about the tone and tenor of the organization, its openness to creativity and innovation, and its tolerance for thinking and presenting inside and outside of the organizational box.

In this post, Cliff Atkinson explains why the price that every organization pays for bad PowerPoint is incalculable. He looks at transforming PowerPoint to make it a reflection of an organization’s positive attributes.
