The 30 60 90 day plan is an excellent strategy for describing an onboarding process or any action strategy. If you are a manager who has an upcoming interview and wants to explain the workflow to a potential employee, having a simple and understanding presentation prepared, can help you demonstrate the company’s principles in a concise way.
This plan can actually be used the other way around too: a potential employee explains to the recruiter, the contributions he’d make as a new hire.
So, no matter the role you are in, we created a universal editable 30 60 90 day plan template, that you can adjust according to your needs.
Follow the article to see how we replaced the typical common table with an attractive graphic.
The 30 60 90 Day Plan Slide Before the Redesign
Our source slide here uses a generic table with old-fashioned looking bullet points. As a result, the slide looks more like a standard Word document rather than a presentation. An engaging presentation should contain graphic elements and illustrations in a way to still deliver a concise message.
Let’s see visually what the slide should look like.
The 30 60 90 Day Plan Slide After the Redesign
Notice the difference! When compared together, we can see how the redesigned slide looks more element-rich and has a proportional space between the text and elements. It’s very important to keep equal margins on the slide. Following the good-design rules, the content can’t be to close to the edge. It makes slide overloaded.
The whole process requires only four steps which we’re explaining below.
Before Redesign: Consider the visual form
The source slide contains information in a form of a table with three columns. In this case, the table may not be the best form of visualization. A slide containing only three elements like the three stages of the 30-60-90 plan have a lot of space to use graphic elements.
Using PowerPoint shapes you can create much more attractive graphics.
Step 1. Start by adding three basic PPT shapes
Add basic shapes like those in the picture – a flat circle with a number, a small rhomboid, and a square with rounded corners. Then, what you should do is, to merge them all together to create the final shape. Notice how we used a gradient gray color, to make all the elements visible.
Step 2. Distribute your text under the tags
Now, after you added the 30, 60, and 90 tags, write down your strategy goals under bullet points. Ideally, align the bullet points to the left for greater effectiveness. Worth to remember: do not use other shapes for bullet points than dots.
Step 3. Add the headers and a linking element
Put your headers above every tag, and link them with a simple element – a straight vector line would do the job great.
Step 4. Beautify your slide with icons and colors
As a final step, add several representative icons and colors to make your slide more visually appealing. Our idea was a magnifying glass icon symbolizing research, getting acquainted, and general analysis, a handshake for collaboration, and a prosperity icon for, as you guess – prosperity! With those symbols you make your content easier to remember by the audience.
I hope you find this guide useful and that it sparked some ideas for your next presentation.
