I’ve found time and time again that Powerpoint isn’t being used as just a presentation medium. Have you ever thought about using Powerpoint to prototype your software or a webpage? Maybe create flow charts?Let’s face it, there are prototyping software out there, but it costs a fortune, and there is always a learning curve. I think Powerpoint sucks as slideshow, but when you want to rapidly mock up diagrams its pretty simple out of the box. Some may argue, “thats what Visio is for” but when your company only has an Office License (Visio doesn’t come standard) what are you going to do?Next time you open up Powerpoint, rethink what you can do with it.
