In order to obtain maximum efficiency for project requests, marketing asks that you review the following information before the project request is submitted. Our department adheres to this process as a project workflow guideline for all departments and divisions.
- All projects submissions must be made 14 days prior to requested due date. Please see the project procedures document for standard project timelines.
- A project brief will be written by the Marketing department for projects that have multiple components and also require multiple team members or departments to produce.
- The Marketing Department will determine if a project requires a brief.
- The KnowledgeNet Brand Guide and 10 Step Project Process will be used as the guideline for all projects.
- Marketing is the final approval for all content.
- Projects submitted inside 14 days are not guaranteed to be completed on the specified due date.
