Why Read This
Let's face it: most presentations fall short. While professionally produced presentations might represent the corporate brand with pride, most PowerPoint decks produced by normal people miss that mark. But is "visual literacy" a skill you can teach? Forrester believes the answer is yes, and information and knowledge management (I&KM) professionals have a responsibility to do it. Teaching design principles, educating workers on content restrictions, and providing visual resources will improve the accuracy and quality of information workers' everyday presentations. The payoff may not be saving lives, but it will certainly come in the form of better information exchange and ultimately a better experience for employees and even customers.
