Now create a multimedia presentation of your final project, the fraud prevention and detection policy. Your presentation should be a concise summary using 10 slides or fewer, highlighting the benefits and costs associated with its implementation, as well as the key takeaways.
ACC 421 Presentations
In a professional career, one may be called upon to conduct research and deliver findings in professional settings. No matter how extensive the research or
accurate the conclusions, a weak presentation can undermine an argument. A presentation is a tool to assist in making an argument. When creating
presentations, students develop skills in researching an issue, synthesizing information, organizing data logically, and presenting findings in an effective manner.
ACC 421 Presentation:
Your presentation will be a summary of your fraud policy, which you completed in Module Seven as your final project. Your presentation should consist of 8 to
10 slides, including a title slide and a reference slide, and should incorporate scholarly resources used in your final project. It should highlight the benefits and
costs associated with the implementation of the policy as well as its key points.
Your slides should cover the key points of the same topics that appeared in your final project:
1. Fraud awareness and prevention policies
2. Individual risk factor management (promotion of moral behavior, code of ethics, etc.)
4. Fraud detection and response policies (including evidence gathering)
5. Controls over physical and logical access
6. Employee controls and supervision policies
7. Accounting reconciliation and analysis
8. Organizational audits and the audit function
9. Senior management support and enforcement of the policy
Principles of an Effective Presentation:
You may utilize a product, such as Microsoft’s PowerPoint, to create yourpresentation. Presentations must be submitted as either a PPT or PDF file.
There are various template designs that you can find on the web for your presentation. However, consider your presentation from the perspective of
your audience prior to selecting a specific style. Distracting backgrounds, large blocks of text, uppercase fonts, elaborate font styles, grammatical errors,
and misspellings are distracting. Be consistent with the style of text, bullets, and sub-points in order to support a powerful presentation that allows your
content to be the focus.
Each slide should include your key point(s). Do not place large blocks of text on the visual. Your presentation is not a means of presenting a short paper.
In an actual presentation you would not “read” from your slides but rather use them as prompts.
Any notes or narration you would use in delivering this presentation to a group should be listed in the “notes” section of the slide.
References should be listed at the bottom of the slide in slightly smaller text.
Use clip art, AutoShapes, pictures, charts, tables, and diagrams to enhance but not overwhelm your content.
Be mindful of the intended audience and seek to assess the presentation’s effectiveness by gauging audience comprehension (when possible).
