Creating a Visual Flow of Ideas
Organization and simplicity are some of the most important things that you have to consider in presenting your ideas. No matter how good and elaborate your ideas are, if people can’t understand these, then it’s going to be useless. One way of organizing one’s ideas is through sequencing, which more or less gives you a clue as to the relationship of time and the given sets of ideas. One classic example of presenting an idea is storytelling.
Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 is software that lets you present ideas in a visually sequential way. Why visual? It is because it makes use of diagrams to separate one idea from the other. Why sequential? It is because it makes use of arrows to establish the direction of ideas. What’s good about this program is that it livens up your presentation with colorful figures and diagrams. This way, you can easily categorize your ideas and use a different type of diagram for each category. If you are going to present about a cause and an effect, you can use red for cause and blue for effect to highlight the difference between them.
With Microsoft Visio Standard 2013, you can create different types of diagrams for different purposes. You can create flowcharts to emphasize workflows, business diagrams if you want to make financial and marketing proposals, and organizational charts. One of the best features of Microsoft Visio is feedbacking and commenting. People can readily comment on your diagram using devices that support Visio services, and you can manage their comments by linking one to a certain part of the diagram and deleting comments that have already been addressed.
If you don’t have the time to meet your group personally to talk about your presentation, don’t panic. Visio has a way of connecting you with your group through IM conversation, audio, and video calling. This feature allows you to send a message to the commenter via IM or you can just call them for a more spontaneous interaction as they comment on your tool. So if you don’t have the time to meet them, count on Visio. This program can bridge the gap for you.
Want your sales to be reflected in diagrams in real-time? Visio can do it. You can easily link your business data, either from Microsoft Excel, Microsoft SharePoint or SQL Server, to your diagram for a more visual and organized presentation.
With Visio, you don’t have to go through a long list of tables, a text-heavy report or a boring chart. You can easily upgrade these presentations into livelier and more organized sets of data. Your great ideas won’t be put to waste.
