Itâs the first time we have a joint assignment, until now we worked in silos and work was duplicated. Iâm in uncharted territory here. Reusing slides would require us to wait till the slides are done, I want to work in parallel.
The answer is obviously yes, but without more information, it would be hard to give concrete suggestions. Are you looking for a way to reuse slides? To have different departments create content simultaneously? What is the perceived difficulty?

The good news is that we had special training for Tech docs and Training to prepare a customer-facing doc and a deck of slides about a complex issue. Although the slides would cover a subset to fit actual training sessions, the subset is large enough for us to consider avoiding duplication of effort between the departments. Is there a way to avoid such duplication and work in parallel?
