Documents development

All the documents have some "Reference documents". Is it preferred to have all the reference documents written before approving the document referring to them?

For example, if we have document 1, which has references to 2, 3, and 4, do we approve all of them simultaneously, or can we approve 1 even if we haven't written 2, 3, or 4?

I'd say we can approve them separately because the references would cover the entire project in the end, and then we would have to have all of the documents ready before approving any.
But what do you think is the preferred way?

Please note that the toolkit was developed in a way that the easiest way for implementation is to approve the documents as soon as you finish developing them (you should follow the sequence of documents as they are presented in the folders in the toolkit). The references are included in a way that when you approve them in the suggested sequence, the referred documents are already approved, or have minimal impact on the document (i.e., they provide complimentary guidance).

We do not recommend you approve all of them at the same time, to not overload responsible for approvals and users with too much information (documents should be implemented with a short interval between them so people get used to information security in a controlled manner).
