    1. 1. Slide MakeoverVideo Podcast #76:Visually showing procedures thatinclude decisionsBased on the ideas in“Present It So They Get It”by Dave Paradiwww.PresentItSoTheyGetIt.com
    2. 2. In many procedures or processes,there are decisions to make thatimpact the outcome or end point.Here is a slide from a financedepartment that explains how toselect the standard to apply.
    3. 3. Hierarchy under IFRS1. IFRS and implementation guidance.2. If no standard exists, look to similar situationsand related issues that are covered by IFRS andthe conceptual framework.3. Otherwise, look to other standard setting bodiesas long as they do not conflict with the above.-ie FASB
    4. 4. Hierarchy under IFRS1. IFRS and implementation guidance.2. If no standard exists, look to similar situationsand related issues that are covered by IFRS andthe conceptual framework.3. Otherwise, look to other standard setting bodiesas long as they do not conflict with the above.-ie FASBUsing a numbered list isa common way to showthe steps in a procedure
    5. 5. Hierarchy under IFRS1. IFRS and implementation guidance.2. If no standard exists, look to similar situationsand related issues that are covered by IFRS andthe conceptual framework.3. Otherwise, look to other standard setting bodiesas long as they do not conflict with the above.-ie FASBThe problem is, that anumbered list implies thesteps are sequential
    6. 6. Hierarchy under IFRS1. IFRS and implementation guidance.2. If no standard exists, look to similar situationsand related issues that are covered by IFRS andthe conceptual framework.3. Otherwise, look to other standard setting bodiesas long as they do not conflict with the above.-ie FASBBut here, the user mustmake a decision if nostandard exists
    7. 7. Hierarchy under IFRS1. IFRS and implementation guidance.2. If no standard exists, look to similar situationsand related issues that are covered by IFRS andthe conceptual framework.3. Otherwise, look to other standard setting bodiesas long as they do not conflict with the above.-ie FASBAnd here is anotherdecision to make(although it is not asobvious as the first one)
    8. 8. So how can we show thedecisions that must be made andthe result of making the decisionone way or the other?Use a decision tree diagram likethis.

Apply IFRS conceptualframeworkLook to other standardsetting bodies; ensureno conflictYesNoYesNoA decision tree is simple tocreate usinglines, rectangles and textboxes. No special graphictools or talent required.

    21. 21. Lesson #4:Explain each stage in the diagramone-at-a-time so the audienceunderstands how to make the bestdecision at each stage.
    22. 22. Before AfterLessons:1. Numbered lists are for sequential procedures2. Decision tree diagrams show questions and answers at each stage3. Build the diagram in PowerPoint so it can be animated4. Explain the stages one-by-oneQuick recap:More makeovers available at www.SlideMakeoverVideos.com
