Types of Documents


Most types of documents can be written in the deck format – from Business documents to Academic Papers, from Instruction Manuals to Technical Papers.

When I was at Deloitte we used the deck format for all sorts of deliverables. We developed proposal decks to sell work and build client project deliverables (varying from simple status reports to detailed analysis reports). Consulting organizations, like Deloitte, are singularly focused on getting their message heard and solving problems. Over the last 3 decades they have all come to the conclusion that they can best achieve that objective by building decks.

Why did they come to this conclusion? Simply put - it’s easier to convey idea in slides – a horizontal document (vs. a vertical document).
