Full Results of the Annoying PowerPoint survey

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

As I analyzed the responses and comments in the survey of “What annoys you about bad PowerPoint presentations?”, This has been in top spot for all five of the surveys I have done going back to 2003. Moving up one spot from the last survey, the second most annoying thing is the presenter filling the slides with full sentences of information instead of summarizing the key messages in bullet points. In the survey, I also ask how many presentations people see on a weekly basis.

Results of the Fourth Annoying PowerPoint Survey

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

The message from my biennial survey of what annoys audiences about bad PowerPoint presentations is that audiences are fed up with the overload of text on slides and how that text causes presenters to read the slides to them. A total of 548 people responded to the survey over a six week period. In the survey, I list twelve annoyances and ask people to select the top three. It has topped the survey every time I have done it.

Typically, analysis includes comparing current results to some standard in order to arrive at a conclusion about the performance of a product, group, or territory. Were we ahead or behind, and by how much percentage wise?
