A couple of thoughts:

  • In true McKinsey style, there is a lot of analysis and data
  • Titles are written in sentence-form with a “takeaway”
  • Standardized color, font, layout, and kicker-boxes
  • Frameworks to simplify the complex: timelines, value chain, bubble charts, histograms, maturity models, waterfall charts, and ROE analysis
  • Diverse topics ranging from Big data in Mining to Polish insurance
  • Use of experts, quotations, and inferences for more qualitative data
  • Use of large surveys (n=20K+) to create voice of customer data

What is your major takeaway from viewing these presentations?

    You have provided a tremendous service here. Thank you! Looking at these decks made me wonder what the delivery of these presentations was like. The slides seem designed to stand alone and survive delivery by an unskilled speaker. This is the opposite of the Guy Kawasaki approach (https://guykawasaki.com/the_102030_rule/), where it might be difficult to reconstruct the presentation from the slides alone.

    My preference is to do the heavy intellectual lifting in a narrative report and then put together a presentation that serves as a verbal executive summary. When preparing the presentation, the logic comes first, and then the slides serve the logic.

      Thanks for comment. I have done both – but prefer slides that stand alone. Slides always get passed around.

    Great work. Thanks for putting this invaluable piece together.

      Surely – thanks for reading and sharing.

    These slides look really, really ugly. Honestly, I’d expect better from an MBB consultant in 2017.

      For many of them, I would agree. Many of these are for conferences and the like – but yes, not very “put together”.
