Establishing expectations and managing boundaries and communication

“If a client deliverable— such as input, approvals, or payment—is late more than 10 business days the project will be considered ‘on hold.’ Once the deliverable is received and the project is re-activated it will be rescheduled based on the company's ’ current workload and availability. Just to say it loud and clear, it could be weeks to get you back in the system if the project is put on hold.”

What is a revision

A revision constitutes a change or variation to an initially presented—or in-progress—design concept, and is typically a change of less than 1/4 of the design. A revision is simply meant to be a slight modification or course correction to progress toward the final design. A new design concept is not considered a revision. This means that a new design concept would be an addition to the project, and would need to be estimated separately, in addition to the current project estimate. —
