Un ottimo prodotto per costruire velocemente Milestones Chart dall'aspetto estetico piacevolissimo, anzi, molto bello.

L'occhio vuole la sua parte, diceva qualcuno. E con questo prodotto si può fare un'ottima figura presentando un piano di progetto al cliente o alla propria direzione aziendale per approvazione.

Al di là dell'aspetto estetico della timeline costruita, il valore aggiunto di questo prodotto è la possibilità di creare con due click del mouse la sequenza delle milestones e delle attività incollandole da una tabella Excel o da un piano di progetto di Microsoft Project (tutte le versioni), evitando di perdere tempo a riformattare il GANTT di MS Project per presentare il piano a clienti e agli stakeholders.

L'add-on di PowerPoint in questione, ci dà anche la possibilità di indicare in modo dinamico la data odierna (Timenow) e di apportare modifiche e commenti per mostrare variazioni rispetto al piano iniziale.

Funziona con le versioni di Powerpoint 2007, 2010 e 2013.

Io l'ho appena acquistata, e nelle prossime settimane la utilizzerò per un progetto che voglio presentare ad un mio cliente a settembre.

Vi terrò aggiornati.

Guides in PowerPoint 2010 | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010 is a program for creating various types of slide to be displayed as a presentation in a slide show. A slide show is a set of slides shown on a computer monitor at specific intervals, depending on what each slide shows. You can decide how long each slide is to remain on screen in your presentation.
You can also use PowerPoint to create different types of designed printed matter and slide show. A slide can include text, images, videos and other objects which you can place in your slide in an ordered way. To achieve a uniform style, PowerPoint uses background templates to control the format content throughout each presentation...
