Building and managing a web project is a big, complex process — one that branches far beyond the phases directly in front of us.
On one hand, there’s the multi-disciplinary nuts and bolts work of creating the site itself. But beyond that, there’s the connective points — the ideas, the strategy, the decision making, and the upkeep. Even if you’re an expert in your field, it can still be a struggle to find context across the entire project landscape.
With The Web Project Guide, we want to bridge those gaps to help understand how each stage of the website process fits in with the next.
So, we need a new website? The easy question is, "Now what?" The harder question is "How did we get here?" Gain buy-in on the reasons behind a new project, define the problem in a way that gains traction, and avoid some early red flags along the way.
What does it mean to get started on this project? Let's set a scope for what this project will include, as well as give some thought to what "success" means -- and your realistic chances to achieving it.
