design for style
Due to a rather complicated project, and another project that somehow slipped past important aspects of my usual process, I've been studying up on project management, software development processes and methodologies, looking to refine my system. Apparently, these topics are also on the minds of others in the Drupal development community:
- Civic Actions: What Makes Web Sites Work (view the slides!)
I've been musing about the "systems" we, as people, work within daily.
Thinking specifically on the system implicit in providing web development and design services, the following points come to mind as contributing to a healthy system:
- No us/them dichotomy. Our clients are part of our systems (or we are part of theirs), and seeking for client feedback regarding "our" processes is informative and essential.
