Ok, we have selected a development group to help with our internet project,
now we want to get together with them to go through some administrative information
gathering and discussion. Here is where we want to clarify the project with the
development group, answer any unanswered questions about our specification, and
introduce ourselves to the team players.>
The Project Managers
A very important part of any successful project requires project
management to keep the project moving forward. Many times this
will include one member of the development group and one member of your
organization. You should have identified your Project Manager by now and
have them at the meeting(It may be you!). Your development group should
identify a person on their side as well. These two should be involved with
as much as the project as possible to insure all issues are known about. This
could mean access to all project logs, or just cc: on urgent email correspondance.
The Team Members
All the team members should be identified. This includes people within your
organization which will help in the identification of any business processes or
information gathering. This will make it easier for the development team to find
what they need in a short amount of time. You will want to know the developers
for they may be calling you or your team members.
Any prepared content should be delivered at this time. This will help
the design team identify the outline for your site. Any sketches you may
have of your dream, or other input you want to give before they begin the
process. The development team will more than likely have a number of questions
Graphics can be a big part of any site. If you have any graphics you want
included in the site, this is a good time to deliver them. At least be prepared
to identify them and define a way of making them available to the development team.
Provide the team members with both internal as well as external contacts
they should be aware of. People within your organization which may be of help,
or vendor contacts which may be needed for integration or other purposes.
