Jargon Guides

A Hands-on PPer is a PPer who is actively involved in a project, often from the time the project is created. The PPer has the opportunity to make style decisions (such as how to represent odd characters in proofing or how to denote unusual aspects of the formatting) before the work has gone too far in the process. This helps to ensure a measure of consistency so that it becomes easier to post-process it when it finishes the rounds.

By advertising for a Hands-on PPer, a Project Manager is requesting help with a specific, challenging project. The expectation is that the PPer will be available to answer questions as they arise, and the PM will defer such decisions to the PPer.
