Action: Q9 Identify the reasons for agreeing the purpose, content, layout, quality standards and deadlines for the production of documents
When we produce a document we need to ensure it is fit for purpose and delivered on time. For example if my hotel manager asks me to produce a poster to advertise that in 2 weeks we will host a karaoke night, I would bear in mind the following for the production of the document:

- Ensure the message and wording engages with our guests’ age group.
- The size of poster must be at least A3 format to ensure it is clearly visible.

- Information will be clear, readable and accurate.
- Get my hotel manager to review the document and suggest any changes before start printing process.
- Decide on number of copies required and order print material 10 days before the event.
