I ran across a blog post on Linkedin by Nancy Duarte that explores why it is sometimes better to present ideas in a rough, sketchy form than it is to present them in a polished form. I’ve found this to be the case in my work, especially on projects where public and/or owner input is crucial in the early stages. Presenting ideas with sketches or in a less polished form tends to convey the message that the ideas are open to discussion and revision, providing a better opportunity for meaningful feedback. What do you think? Does the level of “polish” in a presentation affect how you provide feedback? Read the article and let us know in the comments.
