Supply chain issues
Com 874: Final Project Instructions
The goal of your final presentation is to provide you with experience in presenting a professional
talk that demonstrates your leadership abilities in solving a specific supply chain issue. It is
hoped that this presentation will address an actual problem in your place of work that you could
present to management at some point. Preparing your final presentation will require the
Step 1: Select your topic. First, identify a supply chain issue that is professionally relevant to
your job. It may be a problem you are working on right now with some of your colleagues. It
may be a problem that you think might exist in the future that should be addressed now. It
would be best if the problem is real and relevant to your job, and perhaps most importantly, is
capable of demonstrating your leadership skills. Select something that is specific, that has real
financial or practical implications, and for which you can identify some viable solutions.
Step 2: Prepare a Presentation Plan. Once you have selected your topic, you will need to
create a 2-3 page outline of your presentation. The key to the outline is that you are telling a
story to make a point. The story is that you have discovered a problem that needs to be solved,
and you have listed some useful options for solving that problem. That story requires a fair
amount of research about the problem and its implications. It will also require that you provide:
1. A statement of your goals and the specific response you want from the audience. What
do you want the audience to think or do in response to your message? How will you
know when you have the response you’re looking for?
2. An analysis of the audience including their level of knowledge about the problem, and
the psychographic and demographic analysis of the audience. See chapters 15-17 in
3. A Card Talk analysis of your presentation that includes what cards you will play, the
styles you will try to use to engage the audience, and a rationale for these choices.
4. An outline of the presentation that details: 1) the attention getter you will use, 2) the
problem statement including supporting research, 3) options for solving the problem, 4)
the best option and the benefits of selecting that option that includes a value proposition
to make your solution compelling, and 5) the closing statement that summarizes the
actions you want the audience to take in response to your presentation.
5. A statement of what kind of presentation format you’ll use and why.
I will provide some feedback about the outline before you get started. Feel free to email me with
Step 3: Create your presentation online. You will give the presentation online and record it
using your computer. This will be an 8-10 minute presentation that tells a story. You can record
it as many times as you like to get the presentation you are most happy with. Remember, the
cards you play and the styles you select must help promote the response you’re trying to
receive from the audience.
These final presentations will be graded during the last week of the online class, but they will be
reviewed during the last day of class on April 23, 2016. The rubrics for evaluating the outline
(100 points possible) and the presentation (200 points possible) are provided in the Course
Materials portion of the online classroom
