Presentation is a common activity for a project or team manager, since often the need arises to present the ideas, the work performed, or the work that your team has to perform, or you have to justify the work that has not been performed. In this chapter, I will address such presentations, while presentation made for training purposes will be discussed in detail in the chapter on training (Chapter IV). A presentation is a three-step process. In the first phase, the material presentation is produced (online presentation, slide presentation, paper presentation). Each presentation type is different and will be analyzed, since it is important to know how to prepare a presentation for each different format. The second phase is the preparation of the speech for the presentation. Again, a different way to present the speech is needed to deal with different people attending the presentation (i.e., top management, customer, your team, etc.). The third phase is the real speech by which you have to transfer to the audience the knowledge or messages in the presentation. In all the phases, and especially in the third, the value of communication must be present in order to have a chance of success, as reported in the values section.
