Do you have trouble presenting organizational changes? Sometimes the reason a business change management presentation falls flat is because in general, people are resistant to change. That is out of your control. One other reason PowerPoint presentations fall flat is because of dull slides with default tables and bulleted lists. You may only get one chance to capture your audience’s attention and imagination, so make it count!
Do you use icons and graphics in your presentations? When deciding how to make eye-catching slides, do you think about what frameworks could help you make effective points? Click here to see the full Change Management Diagrams: Lewin’s Model graphics.
Use Graphics to Define Terms from Lewin’s Change Management Framework in Presentations
Why use icons and visuals at all? In addition to making your presentation slides more visually appealing and attention-grabbing, graphics can help your audience understand unfamiliar concepts. There are still usually a few terms you need to define to be able to point a complete, thorough picture. You can also use these graphics or similar ones to present relevant quotes about either the business change itself or the process.
Create PowerPoint Slides with Kurt Lewin’s Change Model Diagram as a Water Cycle
If you’re worried about your audience not understanding your change management presentation, consider using a visual metaphor. A great metaphor for Lewin’s Change Management Model is a water cycle with Unfreeze, Change, and Refreeze steps. These may also be thought of as the “Plan,” “Action,” and “Result” phases.
Use Reshaped Elements to Represent Change
Don’t be afraid to get creative! Using a water-cycle based loop to represent change is just one of the ways you can present a change management process. The example slide, which is included in the Change Management Diagrams: Lewin’s Model icon set, utilizes shaped elements. See how the “Unfreeze” stage looks? Notice it also provides you with plenty of space to customize text to better share your message? The “Change” visual shows the transition between the “Unfreeze” and “Freeze” stages.
