Website Production Management Techniques

Website Production Management Techniques

Creating a web product is same as creating other type of products, it requires a certain management framework and process to develop and deliver the product on time and suitable to the market. Adobe has a great resource on managing a web production. Its framework is not as formal as traditional software development ones, but it has number of iterations to guide through the whole production cycle: discover, define, structure, design and prototype, build and test, launch and evaluate. Discover is probably an useful step, and creating user scenario is probably one of the important steps to create a successful web app:

… Understanding the user—their demographic information, goals, and habits—is a key part of developing user profiles. To take the process a step further, we need to identify the actual situations or scenarios a targeted user might experience in a typical day as he or she attempts to achieve different goals on the site. The user profile describes the user, while the user scenario describes how that user interacts with the site.

Put yourself once again in the user’s shoes and think of the actual online and offline circumstances surrounding the user and the task. Creating various scenarios within the site should take you through several tasks, and lead the user down different paths. Perhaps in one situation the user wants to buy a CD-ROM online for a gift. Perhaps another user wants to browse through new artists to determine if he wants to download a sample clip. Whatever the situation, it’s important to think about the user, the task, and the situation together in order to truly gauge the optimal path for the user to follow…

Finding Your Inside Time

Finding Your Inside Time

An old article that is worth mentioning is called Finding Your Inside Time by David Allen.

David talks about his style on capturing your life details within a journal. By writing every action required items into your journal, you will have more freedom from detaching yourself from all those pressures. He says keeping a journal is like a core dump which can act as your stress release and spiritual in-basket:

Just making a free-form list of all the things you have attention on is a form of journaling and is at least momentarily liberating. On the most mundane level, it is capturing all of the “oh, yeah, I need to …” stuff—phone calls to make, things to get at the store, things to talk to your boss or your assistant about, etc. At this level, it doesn’t usually make for a very exciting or interesting experience—just a necessary one to clear the most obvious cargo on the deck.

I often use my journal for “core-dumping” the subtler and more ambiguous things rattling around in my psyche. It’s like doing a current-reality inventory of the things that really have my attention—the big blips on my internal radar. These can be either negative or positive, like relationship issues, career decisions or unexpected events that have created disturbances or new opportunities. Sometimes core-dumping is the best way to get started when nothing else is flowing—just an objectification of what is on my internal landscape.

This is a key point that David has emphasized in his book Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity – and it is one of the effective tools that I use daily.
