Presentations do not just convey information; they also always communicate the brand through the corporate design. A total of 40 percent of the time that employees spend using PowerPoint goes on formatting. That is an average of 8 hours every month and a large portion of this time is actually spent repeating the same work done on the previous presentation and the one before that, and the one before that, and so on. An automation potential of 34 percent is hidden here, time that could be freed up for other tasks. Employees spend an awful lot of time formatting – but does each detail of the presentation actually correspond to the predefined corporate design? The results of the PowerPoint Study show why this is a misconception! The way that PowerPoint is worked with in companies does not just result in time being lost which could be more effectively used for other tasks, but the brand communication from the inside out is also impaired.
