The Clear Blue Presentation System(tm) (PS) has been developed by Blue Elephant Consulting in order to help presenters with technical backgrounds become more effective at sharing their ideas with audiences and helping to solve problems.
All too often technical professionals have a deep, detailed understanding of a particular subject; however, when they are asked to share their information or solutions with others, they fail to clearly communicate their knowledge.
What Is The Clear Blue Presentation System?
The Clear Blue PS is a framework for creating effective technical presentations. During Dr. Jim Anderson’s 25-years of experience working as an IT professional he has both made and sat through countless technical presentations. What he’s discovered is that there is a way to make these types of presentations effective in getting their point across to an audience that may be made up of both technical and non-technical members.
The one thing that you don’t want to do is to “dumb down” a technical presentation. History has clearly shown that eliminating technical information from a presentation can easily lead to miscommunicaton of important facts.
The Clear Blue PS gathers together the best techniques for creating and presenting technical information. For the first time, each of the steps that is required is now available in a single logical system that clearly lays out what needs to be done in order to create an effective technical presentation.
What Makes The Clear Blue PS Different?
The Clear Blue PS is different from other techniques for creating presentations in two important ways. The first is the Clear Blue PS has been created by engineers, for engineers.
Technical presentations are unlike other presentations. They can potentially contain a great deal of complex information that may not be well understood by the audience. The presenter’s role is to use his or her knowledge of the subject and transform it in a way that makes it understandable to the audience. The Clear Blue PS focuses on how the presenter can use their technical training to create a presentation that can be understood by both technical and non-technical audiences.
Secondly, most other systems for creating presentations focus on how to create good looking PowerPoint charts. The Clear Blue PS goes far beyond this. Yes, it does contain information on how to make compelling slides that won’t overwhelm an audience, but it goes farther.
The 7 Steps To Creating An Effective Technical Presentation
The Clear Blue PS breaks the process of creating a good technical presentation into 7 separate steps. Each step allows the presenter to make sure that they have the information that they need and that it is in the correct format before they proceed on to the next step.
The 7 steps that make up the Clear Blue PS are as follows:
Each step has a set of planning steps associated with it as well as a set of activities that need to be done in order to create a presentation that is both complete and clear. These seven steps, taken together, will allow a presenter to create a powerful technical presentation that will be understood by every audience that it is presented to.
