Upper Management Talk

You’ve been asked to brief upper management on your project.You just updated your team for thirty minutes and have decided to use that talk for upper management.

Is this a smart or not so smart decision?

Not so smart. Most high level executives do not care to hear how you did the project, how long it took you and what you learned in the process. They want the following questions answered:

  1. Was it on time?
  2. What were the benefits to the company?
  3. Are there any issues going forward that you must take care of that will take time, money or resources?
  4. Do they need to make any decisions.

With upper management be smart, cut the details and get to the key messages sooner rather than later.
