Powerpoint decks are designed to sell, not explain

Most business decks outlining a strategy are woefully inadequate for highlighting the rationale behind the proposal. 

Decks focus on the take-aways and tactics. The details are lost and people will make up their stories to fill the space between the bullet points.

This allows the employees to make consistent trade-offs. Micro-decisions that align to the plan.
