I am using this sentence in my resume. I am kind of confused at the usage of the word "decks"

My understanding about decks is - a group of presentation related to different areas in a process.

Sentence:

"Prepare and present weekly process/operational decks to the client"

More information is needed. Decks would usually refer to the decks on a ship. You can also have a deck of cards (for playing games).

So what is the business?

I've heard PowerPoint presentations -- when printed out -- referred to as decks. I don't know where that usage came from.

Its a terminology used in the BPOs. But I am not sure if it is grammtically correct. I hope you did understand what I am trying to convey in that sentence.

BPO - British Post Office? So what IS a deck?
You say "a group of presentation related to different areas in a process". Now is that intended to mean a number of presentations? What is 'a process'?

Prepare and deliver weekly presentation to the client on current processes and operations.
