As the Project Manager, you’ve been asked to deliver the project status to senior management with less than 20 minutes to prepare. Part of your update includes delivering the bad news that manufacturing is having quality issues and won’t make the deadlines. What information do you need to pull together? What is your desired (presentation) outcome? How do you deliver bad news and maintain your composure? It’s imperative that your delivery is clear, logical, and addresses the needs of your audience. Your team is counting on you, and your reputation is at stake.

  • What is your presentation goal?
