What happens during the discovery consultation?
- Key personnel meet to discuss business objectives and website vision
- Roles and responsibilities are identified for each stage of the project
- Project goals are established
- Communication methods are defined
- A project plan document is written
All projects begin with a discovery meeting. We begin the high-trust, collaborative partnership that is essential in working through business objectives, resources, skill sets, processes, and overall vision. The information we learn helps shape our approach to an internet strategy that supports your business and website goals. During discovery, you and key personnel from your organization will work directly with our senior level staff.
In addition to DC Web Designers comprehending the internal workings of our clients, we educate about our process, project deliverables, and usability principals.
Following the discovery meeting, a project plan is created. The project plan is the road map to a successful project that reduces the grey area, defines roles and responsibilities, and sets deadlines for project milestones.
In some instances, it is beneficial for the client to hire DC Web Designers to conduct the discovery consultation prior to delivering a proposal. This method allows our clients to further define their project goals, achieve a better understanding of how a website project process works, demo the recommended technologies, and have a document that provides clear direction and accurate pricing.
