Changing the World, One PPT at a Time
– By Arpitha Rao
I completed one year at Sattva Consulting recently on Jan 2nd. With the New Year kicking in and the mind slipping into its usual year-end reflections, like everybody else I asked myself what was my 2019 all about? Well, it was about changing the world one PPT at a time.
Consulting and PPTs are inseparable and as an impact consultant where your advisory should inevitably lead to tangible impact on the ground, it is all the more important to get those PPT skills right! My small team of members (myself, the firm’s Principal and ever helpful Associates) took a journey to productize service offerings of a leading education foundation in the country. At the end of 9 months, we delivered (no pun intended) ~800 pages of 8 strategy decks that we co-created with the 50+ kindest and brightest educational and behavioral-change leaders in the client firm.
While these 8 PPT decks contain a blueprint for educational transformation in India, the consulting assignment taught me invaluable lessons in systemic thinking and leadership. The process involved understanding the education machinery across 10 Indian states deeply across domains of technology, legal, governance, people development, organization design, and systems.
