WMTW 021: 4 easy steps that will transform your website projects [podcast]
Updated on April 2nd, 2015
In episode 21 we looked at techniques that have helped us improve our website development project times from 6 months to 4 weeks. Particularly the importance of communication. It’s based on my guest post for Odesk.

We dig into the 4 key elements that help your website project run smoothly:
- Get decision makers involved in the planning early
- Get sign off on the project scope
- Put deadlines in place for you and your client
- Have twice daily 10 minute meetings.
We share the agenda for the 10 minute meetings:
- What have I done since the previous check-in?
- What am I planning to do before the next check-in?
- Do I have any bottlenecks? Can I see any bottlenecks arising?
- Do I require any feedback or approvals on my work? If so, who do I need to get involved?
