Where the rubber meets the road...
Discovery is where they gain a deep understanding of client and project. Often this step is undertaken as an initial consultation based on our ‘Project Questionnaire’ method. The focus centers on: Business objectives, Project objectives, Audience, Service definition, Service infrastructure, and Management. The deliverables here are the knowledge and insights gained and documented in a Requirements Specification.
Once the project objectives are clearly defined, the creative process begins with the aim of generating new ideas and material – and testing these ideas with the target audience. The primary purpose is to explore solutions to the requirements specified in Discovery. The deliverables are Wireframes – to demonstrate their ideas for information architecture, navigation structure and page layouts; Design concepts – to illustrate key points of their thinking about your brief or requirement; and Prototypes – wireframes and design concepts are often developed into paper or screen-based prototypes for user testing and client review.
This step centers on building a platform for the rest of the project by documenting decisions made during Exploration, establishing and documenting consensus amongst project stakeholders, describing in detail what will be produced during Implementation Deliverables, along with functional, technical, interactive design and content specifications, as well as the style guide.
Implementation is concerned with producing the creative solution that has been specified in the Definition stage. The exact deliverables are decided during the earlier stages of the project but are likely to include front-end and back-end coding (content management tools and database); graphic assets (supportive collateral materials); documentation and training.
Delivery draws a line under the technical and creative development and focuses attention on making sure that a fully tested interactive service is available to the intended audience on time, working correctly and to specification. The finished service is the key deliverable of this stage.
The final stage is to review the completed project, report on any lessons learned and plan for future enhancements and any post-build maintenance. Deliverables from this stage include a project review and, where appropriate, an enhancement plan and maintenance proposal.
