At first, provide the material as an overview. In documents, discipline yourself to provide an executive summary (even if there are no executives involved). Make this overview both concise and complete, so that if a person receives only this piece, it will provide the essential information or argument. Follow the overview with a deeper layer. Use the skeleton of the overview, but add supporting explanations, examples, flow charts, or statistics, as needed.

Presentation Tip: Word clues to better organize information

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

Another clue I look for is a title that says either “high level”, “summary”, “overview”, or a similar term at the top of a dense slide packed with information.
