  • No More Slides! Leading a True Technical Discussion v5 (1.0 MB)
  • Too many PowerPoint slides can definitely hinder a genuine business discussion!  Attend this session to learn how to structure and deliver a conversation based on business needs and not the order of the slides.  You will also learn how to use this whiteboard technique to deliver information to your managers and team members.  During this session, you will see a sample of this technique focused on a How to Talk about IT Costs message.  This compelling visual whiteboard story and discussion showcase the unique characteristics of total cost of ownership, helping you discover how to discuss these characteristics with your management teams in a structured way, using terms that they can understand.  In addition, you will learn about the different offerings that IBM provides to help you better understand the costs associated with your data center.  Be sure to attend the session and learn how to replace those PowerPoint slides!  An added bonus is that you can use this technique to deliver information on a variety of subjects, not just the topic of the session: How to Talk about IT Costs.
