Product Description

Amazon Review

As the writers of Web Redesign: Workflow that Works know, anyone who has managed the process of developing or redesigning a Web site of significant size will likely have learned the hard way the complexities, pitfalls and cost risk of such an undertaking. While many Web-development firms have fantastic technical expertise, what sets the top-notch organisations apart is the ability to accurately manage the planning and development process. Web Redesign: Workflow that Works directly addresses this crucial area with a specific, proven process.

This brief but important book lays out a specific five-step strategy--called the Core Process--that can always be applied to the development of Web sites and fine tuned to almost any type of project. Each step--defining the project; developing site structure; visual design and testing; production and QA; and launch and beyond--contain three related but distinct tracks. The text begins with a brief overview of each of the steps, then delves deeper into each with detailed explanations as well as specific forms and project management strategies. This book does not cover back-end server side programming. Instead, it focuses primarily on the visual conventional components of a Web site.

Authors Kelly Goto and Emily Cotler compiled this book in an attractive, easy to read format. This process guide uses numerous full-colour screen shots to illustrate site examples, as well as plenty of site diagrams and sample forms. The book even has a companion Web site with downloadable forms in PDF format to put the Core Process into immediate action. --Stephen W Plain

"I wish I had this book when I was working at a Web design firm in the '90s. It would have saved us all a lot of headache."www.webreference.com, Sept 2001

I find this is an invaluable book and will often return to it when starting a new project - whether that's a new website or redesigning an old one. It takes you through all the necessary stages in running a web project, without overloading you with information. You won't overlook any detail if you follow through the book. The author's website is worth a visit and you can download template documents for carrying out client surveys, setting a budget etc. I always use these now.

This book is a great guide with practical and usable methods. A must read for anybody who's interested in "doing it right".
I frequently have my internal and external clients read parts of the book because it explains what is needed resource and attitude wise for the desirable outcome in a web-project. Browse through it frequently to keep my projects on track and on target.
Highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
I am finding this book very useful as a primer and "creative juice extractor." The layout is fine (but the binding will not hold up to use), illustrations are pertinent, references lead to expanded coverage, indexing is well thought out, and little is left out. In the world of categorization, too much detail can kill the excitement. The authors and editors have done a fine job here.

Format: Paperback
This book is the first one I have seen (and I have looked!) that provides valuable lessons and advice for project managers, producers or anyone else producing websites (from scratch or re-designing). If you like the idea of understanding website production whilst learning to avoid the problems that others have come across then this book is for you. It also ties in quite well with the teamwork element of the Jessica Burdman book, Collaborative Web Development
