Powerpoint meetings

An inefficient medium for meetings.

Alot will agree but alot still choose to use Powerpoint for their meetings.

“Written materials transform board meetings. With most of us working remotely, many startups have thrown out Google slides and replaced them with Google sheets. It’s a fundamental change, and one I hope persists after work returns to the new normal.

Amazon is famous for its narrative process and contempt of slides. The email in which Bezos banishes decks reads:”

“The reason writing a good 4 page memo is harder than ‘writing’ a 20 page PowerPoint is because the narrative structure of good memo forces better thought and better understanding of what’s more important than what how things are related. Powerpoint-style presentations somehow give permission to gloss over ideas, flatten out any sense of relative importance, and ignore the interconnectedness of ideas.”
