Dispelling the Illusion of Productivity: 5 Unproductive Phrases Creatives Say and How to Avoid Them” — Phrase 3: Is This Final-Final?

Sponsored by AtTask

How can you get more final than “final-final”?

Yet this phrase is used over and over again by marketing and creative teams. Whenever you hear “is this final-final?”, you can pretty much guarantee that the person asking that question really means to say, “We have exhausting approval processes and I’ve had to rework this piece 19 times. Are you absolutely, positively sure this is final, or can I count on rework #20 coming soon?”

Endless rounds of rework can end up wasting 25 to 40 percent of your project spend, which can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars lost. You can’t afford that much waste in dollars, much less people’s time and resources.

In this webinar, you will discover how to:

  • Make sure each approver is aware of their role in your workflow
  • Define what “final” actually means ahead of time
  • Standardize the approval process
