Deliverables vary based on the type of project. For management tasks these could be plans, agendas, status updates and proposals intended to communicate progress and ensure that process and methodology are developed with forethought and that plans are executed on time and within budget. Deliverables for technical communications tasks include brochures, primers, data sheets, success stories, slide presentations, application notes, white papers, manuals, guides, specifications, research reports, tutorials or help screens, use cases. High-quality graphics that ensure rapid understanding, also created by Mark, often accompany such deliverables.
Typically Mark works with either the marketing or the engineering department. His proven process starts with a written proposal that outlines tasks, establishes firm deadlines and helps to manage expectations. Then regular written status reports are used to clearly document progress to date, specify work to be undertaken in the future and summarize issues and questions to be addressed. The client is kept informed and the project stays on track. Who can't use a practiced and sure hand in their workplace?
Go ahead, start that project now. The initial consultation is free and if nothing else it will be thought provoking.
