Project, Process or Both
Do you need a project, a process, or both? Welcome back to Down to Earth Talk About Web Solutions. Guess what? I’m really not a blogger! But I’m liking this, or maybe I am a blogger but don’t know it.
A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result whereas a process is a series of steps taken to define how work is completed
Planning Your Website
Planning a web project can be frustrating! So many why’s, what, when, where, and how:
- What does hosting mean?
- How many pages will I need?
- Who will write the content?
- Do I need a mobile-friendly or responsive?
- How will I secure it?
- What is a content management system?
- Who will I keep it up?
Calm down and don’t get frustrated. In some projects, the answers to these questions have already been decided by the client and their team, but sometimes, we get more involved.
In my years of helping companies build their technology solution, I found that many individuals, small or startup companies need more help in defining a process before the pay for a project.
A good starting point to your building a process is to understand your company’s purpose then brainstorm. When I started my business, I took out a pencil and paper and began researching and writing. I had to gain a better understanding of the best ways to create my work in order to reach my goals. In doing so, I came up with a process. If you need a starting point, you can do the same.
