This appendix describes how oral reports and presentation are an important means of communication for traffic engineering professionals. Presentations range from simple progress statements to extensive reports on traffic studies. All effective communication must fit the requirements and experience of the audience. This is especially important in oral presentations. Define all unfamiliar terms and arrange and present the main points of the presentation so that they are easily understood and allow a logical conclusion to be made. If a listener cannot follow the presentation with at least a reasonable degree of understanding, it makes little difference as to how the investigation was. There is little chance for a listener, once lost, to catch up. This appendix presents some general guidelines that help make a good presentation.
