Business Assessment

Create a 9-slide PowerPoint presentation that interprets four of the graphs from the report you created in the last two assessments. You have the option of recording a voice-over of up to 10 minutes or including detailed presenter’s notes in the PowerPoint slide deck to explain the points in each slide.

The ability to translate analytic results into clear, concise business language and actionable results is vital for managers and analysts. Managers are often required to present the results of their team’s analysis to executives and must be able to explain the results at a high level as well as understand enough about the details to answer any questions the executives might pose.

How much an analysis is valued can depend heavily on how well the results of that analysis are articulated. Communicating the results of your data analysis so the applications to your business are clear and explicit can greatly enhance the value of your analytic work. In this assessment, consider how you can best communicate the results that you wrote about in your previous assessment. Review any feedback you received on your first assessment and use it to enhance this assessment.

SCENARIO
You are a senior analyst in a business. You may choose any publicly traded company of interest that has practical meaning for you. Your immediate supervisor read your last analytics report on the company’s historical stock performance and was so impressed with your work that she has asked you to present the key points from that report at a company-wide meeting.

YOUR ROLE
You have been allotted no more than 10 minutes to present the highlights of your analytics report to an audience from all levels of the company and explain how the results of your analysis apply to the business using four charts or tables from your report.

INSTRUCTIONS
Create a 9-slide PowerPoint presentation with detailed presenter’s notes or recorded voice-over in which you present and interpret four graphs from the report you created in the last two assessments.
