We work closely with you during the discovery stage to get a clear understanding of your vision. We can then establish a detailed project plan to achieve your objectives. The project team scopes the goals and requirements of your new website. At the end of this stage, your project manager will create a statement of work, which outlines project timescales, activities and deliverables.
Key deliverables include:
The kick-off workshop is where we discuss ideas and clarify project objectives. We will drill down into exactly what you require the website to do. What pages you may need, security requirements, contact forms, automated instruction emails and more. These details will inform the planning and design of your system. We will include the key stakeholders involved in the project from your organisation and your Alberon project team. Other asset gathering activities may include:
- User interviews. We may need to know more about the users and other key stakeholders. It may mean we conduct research. For example, interviewing managers and staff about how they use the system and their requirements.
- Competitor analysis. We will look at competitor websites, consider web design trends and ideas, and examine what you like and dislike about your existing website. Looking at examples helps us get a better understanding of what you are looking for in your solution.
Project requirements. Using the information collated, we work closely with you to establish the overall requirements for the project – everything from functionality to design elements content, usability and more.
Project scope. When we have the requirements, your project manager will create an activity schedule that lists each required task and when it will be delivered on a week-by-week basis.
