I've been asked to post to the blog a question to get everyone's opinion on.

When your station undertakes a massive new campaign or rebranding, how much time do you take to discuss, come up with, design, and execute said campaign / new brand?

What are the pitfalls? What should you always do? What are the mistakes you've made in the past?

Share your thoughts -- everyone will benefit from your thoughts!
