“Texas Style” is a unique format of case competition presentations which has been likened to a board room. 2 minute intro, 20 minutes Q&A, 3 minute conclusion. Sound scary? Well it is!
As many of you know I am the Co-Chair of the Alberta Energy Challenge (AEC). AEC 2013 is a case competition that takes place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada at the University of Alberta. It brings together teams from all over North America to talk about current issues in energy. Teams get 36 hours to put together a presentation to solve a 1 or 2 page case.
One thing that seems to stump some teams time and time again is the Texas Style format. How on earth does a team prepare a PowerPoint slide deck for 20 minutes of open Q&A?!?!
