Multimedia Budget Presentations.
Hughes, Jonathon T.; Rodabaugh, Karl
This book provides an overview of the potential of multimedia budget proposals. The text reviews the fundamentals of multimedia, emphasizing how it improves communication by using multiple levels of input. A process for analyzing many of the budget decisions that must be made, as adapted from Robert Finney's five-step process of "Gap Analysis," is outlined. Tips for applying multimedia techniques to the budget process to help users analyze information and make decisions are followed by concrete suggestions for the type of multimedia graphs and charts that are appropriate at each stage of the budget-development process. Numerous examples of the types of charts that can be used to present descriptive, comparative, and summative information to the viewer are given. Administrators can learn how to combine strategic graphing tools to create a multimedia presentation. Advice on the elements of effective multimedia school-budget presentations are detailed, along with various tips on setting up a room for such a presentation. The text concludes with a recap of major points. (Contains approximately 135 references.) (RJM)
