Power Point Presentation
Develop a slide show providing general information to your colleagues about the component of internal control from the COSO framework you wrote about in your final project report. Identify the component you selected, how you related that component to an effective system of controls. Your colleagues will be interested in why you selected the component you did. Indicate why you think this component is of particular value to an overall system? Are there any particular concerns you have for individuals in applying this component? The slide show is not necessarily limited in length, but an appropriate slide show would probably include no less than four slides and is not likely to include more than ten.
The ability to develop a slide show is often very important in one’s career. This assignment provides an opportunity for students new to this activity a chance to practice. There is a balance between providing a full explanation in a report or narrative writing and using a slide show to highlight key issues. As we all have encountered in some venue, often items referenced in a slide show are discussed by an oral presenter in front of a group. Most successful slide shows include bullet lists with the key points that would be discussed if you presented your case before the class or a live audience.
Slide shows are not a place for a copy and paste of the words from your narrative submissions. Also, most of us have been to a presentation and heard the presenter refer to one of the slides as “sort of like an eye chart,” because the text is too small to see and read. Summarize on your slides, rather than including long text. A very good slide show should be suitable for you to stand up and present to an audience.
If some content in the slides is based on a published source, a citation and reference list using APA formatting would be appropriate. That includes a reference list at the end of the slideshow and small citations by the content supported by a reference. For example, you might refer to the Fraud Triangle or an aspect of the COSO Framework in supporting your points. A reference to those would be appropriate.
