If your business has a website, a lot has gone into building the website from start to finish. Moreover, website project management is often a detailed process that requires an ongoing commitment by professionals. As far as establishing streamlined workflows goes, there is usually a hard and fast set of rules (or methodologies) that web developers use to make this happen. And while specific methods are more popular than others, a few methods come out on top time and time again. These include:
A website built from scratch can be pretty intensive, so much so that it can be tempting to run towards the finish line simply because there is so much to get around. The benefits of using Agile for website project management can assist in breaking down various projects such as page designs, developments, testing, and research into cycles that can be tracked in real-time as they continue to run. This allows for a faster reaction time by the relevant team members as the process unfolds.
Speaking of web developments, perhaps you need to share multiple images with your web designer for the upgrade of your website. However, this can be difficult to do without compromising the quality of the images when you have to send multiple JPG images at a time. You could instead convert the images into PDF format and then combine PDFs into one file which makes it easier to send in one go.
Kanban is another web-based projection software that makes the follow-through of tasks easier by moving them along through a series of boards as each step is completed. From a productivity point of view, Kanban is one of the best methodologies that exist, as it allows project managers to allocate only a set amount of time to Work in Progress projects so that valuable time is not wasted in any one particular area.
The Waterfall methodology is perhaps a bit more stringent than the rest in that it only allows tasks to be completed in sequence. In this way, it follows a logical structure whereby it’s difficult to make mistakes and not notice them. All in all, Waterfall makes a web developer’s life much easier because it is harder to go wrong when the details are all laid out for you to follow.
Scrum is a popular methodology used by project managers that want to oversee projects more easily. Typically, sprints are reviewed by the scrum master over short periods of time to ensure that everyone knows what they’re doing and that everything stays on track.
The critical path methodology, on the other hand, ensures that the most critical (and time-consuming) tasks are handled first, thereby eliminating the most pressing tasks from one’s to-do list. This way, project managers ensure that the most important tasks are dealt with adequately within the best timeframe possible.
In summary, web-based projects usually display careful attention to detail. But as we’ve seen, with technology, the processes can be simplified to the point where everything runs like a well-oiled machine, provided you have the right professionals by your side who can help take over the reins from you where necessary.
