Workplace Scenario

In this assignment your team will make an oral presentation, summarizing the results of the Inception Phase, to your client, co-workers, and supervisor. You should summarize the content of the artifacts produced in the Inception Phase (Vision, Use Case Model, Glossary, and Supplementary Specification). You should create visual aids (such as a PowerPoint deck, handouts, etc) to supplement your presentation.

The ability to present information orally to a variety of audiences is a very important skill to learn and practice. It probably goes without saying that you will be called upon in your internships and career to present information orally, but you will probably also want to make such presentations to social groups and a variety of other organizations with which you become a member.

An oral presentation is a prepared, purposeful presentation designed to increase knowledge, foster understanding, or promote change in the listeners’ attitudes, values, beliefs, or behaviors. In our case we want to foster understanding within your team, your supervisor, and the client that we have a good understanding of the project’s overall goals and scope.
