Harvard Business Graphics was a great tool for presentation several
years ago; I haven't heard too much lately either. Currently, I mainly
use Power Point for presentation, since it is more compatible with
other Microsoft products. Also, Power Point is very easy to use and is
used a lot by many different companies.

I don't use all Microsoft products, but my experienced with Microsoft
Office is that you could have a great presentation when some of the
software are combined to use together for presentation.

I teach professional writing to business and technical students at
Northern Kentucky University and serve on the department's technology
committee. In the past, we've used Powerpoint to get students started
with creating presentation materials. Recently, a colleague was told
by a local headhunter that the students should also be learning and
have access to Harvard Business Graphics, and that teaching them to
use Powerpoint was behind the times.

I'm aware that Harvard Business Graphics was one of the first
presentation software packages, but had not heard a great deal about
it recently. I've also used the demo for HBG '98 that is available on
the web, and its features do not appear to offer significantly more
than Powerpoint offers. Also, my impression was that most businesses
purchase a package like Microsoft Office for their day to day needs,
although I'm sure much more sophisticated programs are in use.

Could the list respond with comments about (1) which software packages
are most extensively in use for presentation materials and (2) the
statuses of Powerpoint and Harvard Business Graphics are in the
business and technical communities?

I apologize if my question is very basic. Thanks for your help!
