Inspired by Amazon, Google and others, Media & Entertainment Strategies now offers Story Reporting as an alternative to PowerPoint, Keynote and video presentations.
Story Reporting is a simple yet powerful analytic tool that promotes focused team-thinking and consensus-building. Research results are delivered in the form of a narrative document (Word or Pages format) and shared at a team meeting. Initially, the entire team spends 30 minutes quietly reading the document together (maximum eight pages in length). Following this, there is a 60-minute discussion focused on addressing key questions and developing next steps.
This process offers several advantages over other deliverables:
- The narrative nature of the analysis leads to a context-rich, thorough and nuanced record of the project
- The unique “presentation” approach ensures that all team members receive the same information, have adequate time to digest the data, and that learnings are not derailed by peripheral conversations
- The team discussion ensures that everyone has fully processed the research findings, and leads to the immediate development of implementation strategies
