The PowerPoint reporting package for the executive review meeting will consist of income statements, capital spending reports and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Comments will be included, and there will be slides/reports at the region and total corporate level. You have spent hours copying the Excel “reports” and pasting them into the PowerPoint slides. Also, in order to produce the numbers for the region and total corporate reports, you had to combine the multiple Excel spreadsheets from the site analysts. This included calculating the KPIs at the region and corporate levels. You finally have everything ready for tomorrow’s first executive review meeting, although it’s 9:15 PM and you’re still at the office.
