I Hate Powerpoint

And I hate Powerpoint presentations. I love the idea of Powerpoint, but its misuse/overuse disgusts me. There is waaaaay too much time spent making something look pretty for a presentation when the idea could easily be conveyed in a two sentence email.

If everyone felt this way, things may be different:

Tell me a problem that can’t be outlined in six minutes and I’ll show you a problem it’s probably not worth having a meeting about.

I’ll take that one further. Meetings should not be used to discuss and describe problems in an organization. That’s what email, intranets, wikis, blogs, reporting tools, etc. are for.

Intraorganizational meetings should be used to resolve problems that aren’t being resolved elsewhere. Period.
