Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
All students will give a short presentation online. The format will be a PechaKucha style, which is concise presentation using 20 slides that show for 20 seconds each, and then auto transition to the next slide (6 minutes and 40 seconds).
The topic can be anything you would like having to do with management and what we are learning in class. It should be a topic that interests you. Beyond that there are very few specific directions. You could tell the class (me) about a company that you believe is well-managed, or a leader you think is particularly inspiring or effective, or a company that is doing something to help their community, or a management theory that you found to be of interest.
You will have to do outside research to complete the presentation. The only requirement is that you engage and inform the audience. More information on this style of presentation can be found at www.pechakucha.org Links to an external site. or try Googling the term. You can also learn about this style of presentation, with an example by watching this youtube video.

Pecha Kucha: Get to the PowerPoint in 20 Slides
I have provided a blank template hat already contains the 20 second slide transitioning). Each slide, other than the first slide, which should contain your name(s), the topic, and the date, should have images, and very few words, if any. In the notes section of each slide, you should type the narrative for that slide. The best way to get started (once you have identified a topic), is to complete a storyboard https://tweakyourslides.wordpress.com/2011/12/13/storyboarding-a-pecha-kucha/Links to an external site.
Since this is an online class, you will submit your pecha kucha with a voice over. This may require some research of how to voice over in Power Point.
