Can anyone recommend a persuasive, unquestionably authoritative
presentation on why a formal design process, characterized by
progress toward increasing precision -- for hardware AND software --
makes good business sense?
I've got a VP that doesn't have the time or patience to read
anything too lengthy, who's an electronics engineer, struggling to
understand the needs of the burgeoning software department under
Too much design jargon will be a turn-off.
Perhaps a presentation on slide-share? Something by the CEO, or Chief
Engineer of an electronics manufacturing Fortune 500 maybe?
I recall reading an article in which powerpoint was blamed for its
inefficient and ineffectual presentation of data. A comparison was
then made between a single slide and something like four powerpoint
slides that were needed to present the same data, losing the
obviousness of certain trends in the process.
I've just spent a good half an hour trying to find it with zero
success, so I'm hoping someone here knows what I'm talking about.
