Within any creative process, there may be no definitive end to the new ideas that seem to pop up along the way. While on the one hand, changes and additions to a project can add significant value, they can also derail it if they aren’t kept in check. Using a sign-off sheet is an effective way to keep your project on target and all stakeholders informed and happy with its progress.
Chances are if you’re working on anything of significance for your company, you’ll find yourself asking for approval on a variety of occasions. The people to which you submit your request may vary depending on the subject matter. Every request, whether it be project proposal approval, extending deadlines, or deliverable approval, for example, should be treated uniquely and given the proper care when drafting a request.
In the creatively complicated world of marketing and advertising, going from conception to product realization is not an easy process. Using time tested, proven project management methodologies is the best way to ensure your project is progressing with efficiency while maximizing every bit of creativity your project team has to offer.
