Riktlinjer för riktlinjer : En studie i att utforma riktlinjer för presentationsteknik för anställda inom en organisation.
Many workplaces around the world use some kind of presentation software as an aid during presentations. At Westinghouse Fuel Service in Västerås they experienced that they didn´t know how to use this medium to its fullest extent. They wanted to increase awareness of presentation skills with PowerPoint among the employees, to improve their internal and external communication. A desire they are certainly not alone to have in the working life.
My research studied how to design guidelines for the use of presentation software, so the users can easily absorb the message and find motivation to use the guidelines. In order to adapt the guidelines to their users, and thus create major opportunities for them to absorb the message, I based my study on the concepts legibility, readability and reading value. My research took place at the department at Westinghouse.
The study was initiated with a literature review and a pilot-study that included situation analysis of present PowerPoint-presentations created by employees at the company, interviews with employees and observation of one presentation. Based on theories and conclusions from my pilot-study I designed the guidelines based on the concepts legibility, readability and reading value. I tested how the employees accepted the message and appreciated the design in a try-out. The results from the try-out were generally positive and all the subjects found value in reading the guidelines.
The study shows how to design guidelines for presentations skills to make them legible, readable and to have a reading value.
