  • Reschedule projects based on new or changing priorities. This often happens when clients initiate rush jobs, or the agency becomes involved in a pitch.
  • Report to management about the current workflow, and communicate any possible issues with too much, or too little, work coming into the agency.
  • Work with the accounting and production departments on invoicing, and possible additional costs due to rush fees, or unexpected deadlines.
