Walk into a meeting fully prepared – Creating a Master Slide deck

I’ve been involved with managing either projects or products over the last few years. I’ve been called to numerous meetings to talk about new products/projects, their value propositions and their road maps. Recently, I’ve started creating a master slide deck for each product/project I’m managing. This slide deck has everything you need to know about the products – from its history, value prop, results, goals, graphics etc.

I’m able to take pieces out of this slide deck to create presentations for any meeting for any purpose. It’s also a great repository for me to keep my results and next steps. This deck is never finished, yet it is evolving everyday with new information.

Removing blockers

Often times, a blocker (typically, a person) will stand in your way from a goal you’re trying to achieve.

This is one great advice that I have received recently…

Ask the blocker, “how do I remove blockers?”

Hey, it’s me

Yo, it’s Ashish signing in. My goal here is to capture my thoughts, my process, lessons etc. I’ll be writing for myself – for me to materialize and document all the random ideas going through my head.
