<One of the advantages of working in the advertising industry was that I had

a traffic manager--who actually scheduled the process across all the
stages. Traffic managers assign work time frames, delivery and production
deadlines, travel times, and then actively track the product through every
stage. It was a pretty fair process. And they negotiated/arbitrated any
variances between depts/vendors and with the client.>

This is very interesting. It looks like we can apply some traffic management
principles to our work. Can you point us to articles/books/websites that
describe how these people do their jobs?
