Most commonly, though, it is used as a resource for B2B presentations.

It is also possible to download PPTs from SlideShare, if the presentation authors permit it.

YouTube

It is easy to find presentations, keynotes, speeches, webinars, and more, on virtually any topic.

Academic Institutions

Academic institutions are also a great resource for change management content.

To find the best academic resources, look for schools that offer certifications in change management or organizational development.

Hacks, Tips, and Tricks for Finding PPT Files … Fast

Finding organizational change PPT files, PDFs, or orther downloadable content takes time.

Regardless of your aim – whether it is research, curiosity, or business – the right research techniques can dramatically speed up your workflow.

Search Operators

Search operators are special words or characters inserted into search engines.

They modify the results of your search – and the right ones can dramatically reduce your research time.

Here are a few useful ones:

  • Filetype:[file extension] – “Filetype:PPT” will bring back PowerPoint Presentations
  • Site:[website name] – “Site:blog.walkme.com” will bring back results from WalkMe’s main blog
  • -[word to exclude] – “-2018” will exclude search results containing “2018”
  • Quotation marks – “Change management” will focus on search results that contain “change management” as a phrase, not as two separate terms

For more information on search operators, simply search for “search operators” followed by the name of your favorite search engine.

Subscriptions

Subscriptions are another way to stay tuned to relevant content.

They come in several flavors:

  • Email subscriptions, found on almost every major blog or website, deliver content directly to your inbox
  • Social media subscriptions, such as YouTube subscriptions, Twitter follows, or LinkedIn follows, keep your social feeds tuned in to a particular account
  • Search alerts, through Google Alerts or Talkwalker, for instance, send you email updates whenever new web content is found that matches a search criteria
  • RSS subscriptions, through any popular RSS feed reader, updates whenever a website’s RSS feed is updated

Naturally, not all of the content delivered here will be relevant or useful.

However, subscriptions can save you a great deal of time.

Rather than manually searching for downloadable content, you can just check your subscriptions periodically.
