SBAR - Exercises in PowerPoint Style #2

2,384 views

Published on

This PowerPoint deck is part of a collection. Each deck in this collection models a different communication or presentation style. Some models focus on visual display, others strictly on organizing information.

This collection is inspired by Exercises In Style, the classic book by Raymond Queneau. In Exercise In Style, Queneau retells the same very simple story 99 times in 99 different styles.

This deck uses the “SBAR” style. “SBAR” is an acronym for “Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation.” This style can effectively convey the essentials very quickly. And once the essentials have been boiled down, you can use the SBAR structure to elaborate as needed.
The SBAR style was originally developed by Kaiser Permanente to improve patient safety through improved communication. The American Society of Safety Engineers published a nice article describing SBARs and their origin

  5. 5. Background• This project is essential to sales and customer retention• We secured funding in March and began development in May• Development is running behind schedule5
  6. 6. AssessmentDelays are primarily due to two factors:1. Our initial estimates for level of effort were too low, so we did not hireenough developers and testers to complete the work on time2. Even if we add developers and testers today, we will still go live at least onemonth late3. Several key internal stakeholders consider this work a low priority, so wehave had difficulty getting access to key resources, such as subject matterexperts and test environments6
  7. 7. Recommendation• Release an additional $250,000 to augment staff with contractorsover the next 3 months• Proactively communicate the strategic importance of this projectthroughout the organization• Build this project’s success metrics into the incentivized goals of keymiddle managers7
