Analog Devices: 1986-1991

The First Balanced Scorecard

Guide to Period Presentations

I've used a PC for creation of all of my presentation materials since the early 1980's, I have nearly all of the original files.  Unfortunately, opening the oldest files is easier said than done because of lack of backward compatibility of some hardware (e.g. Mac diskette drives that can no longer read single-sided diskettes) and software (e.g. Lotus Freelance which can no longer read earlier GraphWriter files).  Even when the old files can be opened in the current software version,  formatting is not meticulously maintained.  Since I have hard copy of all of the old materials, I've had to modify the formatting or totally recreate a few of the graphics from scratch.  I've made them as true to the originals in both text and format, as I can.

I've tried to standardize the format for dating the graphics.  In each case, the lower right hand corner of the slide contains the original creation date and the file name.  Below it, appears the date and file name of the actual display, if a revision of the original one was used in the actual presentation.  I also discovered that each time I upgraded my PC, the original "creation date" was changed to the current date.  Fortunately, the "last modified" date was not changed.  In 1988 I started using the creation date as the file name.  As a consequence, in a few cases I am only able to date the original graphic as "on-or-before."  When this happens, I use the last modified date and the symbol "c." to represent circa.

I've chosen to use, wherever possible, presentations where I have both the original slides and a video or audio tape of my actual presentation.  I have carefully transcribed these tapes without any editing of my original words, as tempting as that was in many cases.  Where editing was necessary, I have enclosed the edited text in brackets [  ]. Please forgive the long and sometimes rambling sentences, but I think that it's important to avoid that editorial slippery slope given my objective of historical accuracy.  

I recommend that you view these presentations as MS Word (.doc) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files.  Each has both the slides and associated notes, either current or from transcripts.  I've included MS PowerPoint versions of the slides (.ppt) in case you need greater resolution.  The htm versions are included primarily for search purposes.  You can view them directly with your browser, although they are not currently optimized for that purpose.  

The one exception to the above is the Pilot Demo which is best viewed using Adobe Acrobat in full-screen mode (click on notes icon next to slide number for description of the slide) or MS PowerPoint as a "slide show" (click on "speaker's notes" to view my comments).  The htm version uses PowerPoint through your browser.
