Any approach with organization in mind before you get to an actual high 
cost session is welcome.  However, one of the skills in this environment 
is the ability to quickly adapt to whatever wrench is thrown into the 
works, including a variety of stocks and, of course, exposures, opinions, 
etc..  Now if we could perhaps group all of the art directors into one 
corner of the room, and the account guys into another, and the editorial 
folks into another . . .   More often than not, though, elements are 
arranged by the editor - according to his style of operation.
