Survey Report of Presentation Skills Training in "Fortune 500" Industrial Companies.
Corder, Lloyd E.
A study surveyed current presentation skills training practices of "Fortune 500" industrial companies. Each company's chief executive officer was sent a cover letter explaining the study and a copy of the survey. Data were obtained from 154 respondents (for a 36% response rate). Results indicated the importance of presentation skills to job performance, and a majority of the companies (82%) provide some kind of presentation skills training. Findings suggest that most training courses are short, specific, and drill oriented, and that they are evaluated in some way at the conclusion of the training. (Seventeen tables of data are included.) (KEH)
