PSC 495 Internal Business Proposal
The purpose of this assignment is to draft an internal business proposal presentation to share with organization personnel you would like to have sponsor or support you in the implementation of the problem solution you have suggested. You will do this by creating a PowerPoint presentation and filming yourself giving the presentation. You will post the filmed presentation to the YouTube website and provide the link to it the Main Forum so you can receive feedback about your presentation from your peers and instructor.
Review the stakeholder analysis you completed in Topic 3 to determine the key stakeholders that will make up the audience for this presentation. Focus on identifying decision makers that will have the power and resources to approve the implementation of the solution. These are typically your supervisors and key organization personnel.
Construct a 5-10 slide PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following. Include speaker notes for each slide.
Problem and related research
Proposed solution and related research
Details for implementing the solution
Details for evaluating the effectiveness of the solution
As part of the presentation, you must include slides that provide text along with visual representations of the data you have collected. The visuals should include the three graphs or charts that you created from the data collected in your research during Topic 2.
Once the presentation is complete, you will film yourself pitching the idea to the stakeholder audience. It is important that you dress for success and practice your presentation prior to filming it. Assume you will be talking to organization leadership not as a student, but as a change maker within the organization. In the presentation, your job is to use the PowerPoint as a tool and visual reference while you present the problem, your proposed solution, and your plan for implementing the solution. The key to success is utilizing your research and presentation skills to clearly articulate the information to these key stakeholders while also identifying their specific call to action.
After you have practiced your presentation, record it, and post it to the YouTube website. You will post a link to the video in the Main Forum to receive feedback from your peers. You will submit the completed PowerPoint presentation and YouTube video link to your instructor for review and feedback.
