How do I know if my deliverable is C-Suite ready?

All executives are different and have different preferences.  Given that, the decision support resource must often learn what resonates with and what doesn’t for the C-Suite by trial and error.   Some executives are very detailed while others are not.   There are a few common themes however that we have seen throughout our experience.   Typically, your deliverable should be short and to the point.  Refer to appendices for any heavy supporting data.   Multi-dimensional graphics and charts work well and always present solutions, impact statements and next steps with your top level 1-2 pager.  They need answers and quickly.  If you catch their attention, they will ask for the detail.   Our guidebooks are built with this in mind.
