If using PowerPoint, you’ll want to express the key findings or conclusions on the face of the slide and then explain in more detail in the “notes” section at the bottom of the slide.
I’ll also share some tips and guidance on where to look for certain items within the rubric:
Title page
Feel free to be creative on the company name. Remember it just need to make sense based on the type of company that we are (we are manufacturing dog collars, leashes, and harnesses).
Introduction
Be creative here. Describe the company, the mission, and what you envision for the future.
Purpose
Here’s you’ll explain the purpose of managerial accounting in supporting the mission of the company. We had some great conversations on the role of managerial accounting in our Week 1 class discussions, so you may want to refer back to that forum. Additionally, below are some resources that I provided during that week in the classroom:
