Ok, so we all know making power point presentations and either presenting them or sharing them via email is one way to do it. What are other ways in which you have seen it work well?
In our agency (and our Invention subgroup) at the end of every project we upload the final deck to an Evernote that everyone has access to. It's a bit easier than a server and e-mail because there's in-line preview, and tagging can bring up all content related to a specific client or project (rather than searching through folders or making the right queries).
We also have a built in feedback system we call Cabal (which is sort of like a macro scrum checkin for our group of 5). Every Monday we have a morning meeting booked out. During this time we share the latest work with each other and ask for input and feedback (so we can get different thinking across clients and projects).
Seems like it's easy to conflate sharing a document with sharing findings. I've got a number of best practices I found in observing my clients and in researching internal research champions that I've written up at slideshare.net
Steve is right. Don't confuse sharing documents with sharing knowledge.
The best way to share the knowledge gleaned from research is to have everyone participate in the research, even partially. Sharing the research after the fact makes it much more difficult.
If you want people to know how great a meal tastes, they have to taste it. No amount of explaining how yummy the food was will make them understand how yummy it actually was.
My recommendation: Don't let anyone know about the research unless they participate. I know that's radical, but maybe it's the only way to ensure they get the full value?
Thanks for your feedback! Team Branch
