Book Description

21 Sep 1999 0201433311 978-0201433319 1

In Collaborative Web Development, author Jessica Burdman shares the successful secrets of managing a web project, including collaboration, communication, and budgeting. The book provides many case studies of both successful and unsuccessful Web sites, and will help web-project managers pick and manage their web teams so they can sell their projects and needs to executive managers. The ultimate goal of this book is to make a “level playing ground,” offering a similar vocabulary for developers, marketing people, and IT managers, so everyone is “bought in” to the Web project.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Developing an effective and successful presence on the Web is a requirement for all organizations. As the Web has matured, the development and management of sites has become increasingly complex. Today, Web site development requires the close collaboration of diverse professionals such as programmers, interactive designers and engineers, animators, videographers, writers, marketers, and businesspeople--all working within a highly coordinated and structured development process.

Written by a leader in Web development methodologies and processes, Collaborative Web Development brings structure and sanity to what is often an overwhelming and chaotic process. Drawing on the front-line experiences of practicing professionals and numerous real-world case studies, the author will help you get a handle on the issues and challenges you face, with proven strategies for effective coordination among team members and clients, a smooth development process, and a successful end result.

You will find in-depth discussions on crucial topics such as:

  • Working with clients to determine the goals and scope of a project
  • Pulling together an effective team
  • Developing a Web Site Development Cycle that is appropriate for your project
  • Planning the project, establishing procedures, and setting a timeline
  • Communicating effectively with team members and clients
  • Managing the client relationship
  • Balancing scope and technical sophistication with cost and time constraints
  • Managing large-scale Web sites
  • Meeting quality assurance standards for Web projects

So that you can benefit from the experiences of those who have been through the process, this book includes concise interviews with accomplished Web site managers and developers who reveal valuable insights and practical suggestions for successful Web site development.

As a tv producer making the leap into web producing/project management, this concise guide is exactly what I needed. With its clear lay out and refreshing lack of jargon, this is more than massively informative - it's actually an enjoyable read. Great CD rom with loads of useful stuff included - well worth every penny.

As Director of a "fledgling" web design agency I have found the tips and advice contained within this book indespensible...
The included CD however, whilst containing some excellent example budgeting spreadsheets, is so useful for document templates
