Visualizing various management topics and concepts such as strategies, analyses, plans, business models, objectives, etc. can be challenging because such slides usually incorporate a lot of information. To succinctly convey these ideas during company meetings, we suggest strengthening your executive presentations with graphics and relevant visuals.
Here you’ll find our recommendations for PowerPoint slide decks that can be a source of graphical inspiration for you.
Running behind on your presentation schedule, or just looking forward to making sure your presentations are top-notch? Use the power of visuals to communicate your insight and key points efficiently, save time with your management tasks, and finally deliver that presentation without worrying about creative presentation ideas!

Here is a suggestion of several templates which will help you save time and effort in creating your executive presentations. You can use them as a whole presentation or just copy specific slides and graphics:
- OKR Framework: Objectives Key Results
- Responsibility Assignment RACI Matrix
- SWOT Analysis
- Product and Strategy Roadmap Tables
- Status Review Meeting
- 30-60-90 Day Action Plan
- SMART Goal Planning
Objectives and Key Results (OKR) Infographics
OKR is a goal-setting methodology to set challenging, ambitious goals with measurable results. Even if you don’t utilize the OKR methodology within your company, you might still need to talk about tracking and measuring objectives, progress over time, or monthly/quarterly achievements and failures. See Objectives and Key Results Performance Review deck with slides to illustrate OKR concepts, goal setting processes, progress tracking, and performance reports.
Responsibility Assignment RACI Matrix
The RACI matrix is used for assigning job tasks and defining work breakdown. It’s a valuable project management tool that will help you identify roles assigned to each duty: Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, and Informed. Such a table can help give you an overview of who’s in charge of what between team members.
Creating your own matrix can be pretty time-consuming – have a look at our pre-designed RACI matrix diagrams that will help you create clear slides faster.
Examples of using RACI matrix graphics:
- Illustrating higher-level project milestone responsibilities
- Drawing a map of personnel occupation status and evaluating your group’s capacity for the next assignment(s)
- Explaining people and work management theories
SWOT Analysis Presentation Diagrams
The SWOT analysis is a well-known strategic planning and management technique, which is very often included in executive presentations or marketing reports. SWOT can be used to influence stakeholders’ decisions, so it’s important to illustrate it effectively to make an impact on your audience. Check our SWOT analysis diagrams collection for inspiration.

Review Meeting Template
In order for your team to work together, you need to communicate clearly about the goals you have and make sure they know where things stand with their projects. However, one pitfall is that review meetings and brainstorming sessions take too much time – especially if they are unorganized and not structured properly.

You can use these presentations graphics to:
- Keep track of your business’s next steps
- Outline what topics will be discussed
- Show clearly meeting agenda, structure, and outcomes
- Create lists, agendas, timelines, and further steps diagrams
