Ensuring Success and Clarity of Purpose
How do you successfully manage and specify such a large and complex project? Well, it's down to experience, project management know how, staff expertise and excellent relations with multiple client staff members from marketing to comms to IT.
Our specifications process lasted for four months and culminated in a 45 page detailed specification covering all elements of the site's visual design, information architecture, CMS requirements, personalisation capabilities, security, hosting infrastructure, integration needs and support/service levels. It became a clear Statement of Work that everyone could sign-up to.
