Are you needed every time / all the time? 9/24/2013 24Prasad Modak
  24. 24. Developing the Slides • First use “bare” template • Put only title slides • Print, discuss, get approved and then finalize – especially slides that will be kept in stock as a back up; slides that will be hyperlinked; slides that serve as “pauses”, “separators”, “punches” • Now select/design the template and start filling in …. 9/24/2013 25Prasad Modak
