The intention of this document is to document the general workflow process for publisher direct sold deals, with an eye toward best practice. Giving the industry a commonly accepted process and shared language to discuss the existing processes.
From this first version, we can work toward future versions which will include more details. This document will never be a blueprint as no two publishers will have identical processes. But operational processes should be more similar than different. Shared processes also allow us to work together to improve efficiency in those processes to the benefit of all of our organizations.
