Think of your communication not as an one-way effort. It is not enough to design a flyer and to concentrate on answering all questions regarding your project in this one flyer. What makes you sure to find the answers on questions that you already do not know?

[edit] Corporate Identity, Values, Strategic Goals

Our impact on other people can be influenced by our work but never with certainity. The prospects, that others look on us, how we want to appear, increase, if as much dimensions of communication as possible are reflected by our PR work. This is the main idea behind the approach of Corporate Identity. Identity is therefore a mixture of behaviour, communication and design. The basis for it are the mission and the values as well like the strategic goals in the long term perspective.

In example, we should plan to invest time and energy for elaluation after important steps (like milestones) or siginificant events. Plans must be flexible enough, that they can be applied to new situations and findings.
