Asking for an overview deck is an understandable request from a CEO, of course. Senior executives need to see the road map, and want to know their leaders are worth their salaries.
But it’s a bit like the NFL commissioner cancelling all games to investigate why the Chargers aren’t winning.
My feeling is that creating that PowerPoint deck is work that has to be cordoned off, separated from the delivery team.
The delivery team needs to keep delivering.
Of course, senior executives must understand the project goals and how it fits in their strategy. If it doesn’t fit, the project should be stopped. But, most often, the project direction is right, it’s the execution that’s off.
I’ve never seen a PowerPoint deck improve execution.
