I’m working for a company that’s doing a lot of projects in web design, graphic design, front and back-end web development and also WordPress, I’m currently focusing on the web design and WordPress part. The problem within this company is that there is little to no structure or guidelines for us to help guide us through a project, many clients just send an e-mail and want it to be completed within a matter of days… Quite annoying most of the time, but that’s not what I’m here for.
Luckily I’m working on the bigger more long term projects now, but I want to introduce some type of guidelines and structure to the company so we can better ourselves and help is guide through projects. I hear many success stories from others working at companies that follow certain types of guidelines. Now I quite new to this and can use all the tips, from folder structures to documentations and workflows.
I have read a couple articles were people explain how they work, showing their workflows and folder structures and some of them look like rocket science and others look quite simple. What I’m trying to say is that there is so much difference in, I guess it’s something that has to work for the person who’s working with it, if that makes any sense… But there has to be some kind of guideline that makes the basis right? I guess I’m just curious how you guys work and if you use any tools to help you through a project?
Sorry for the long post, I can get a little carried away when I’m writing about these subjects. It is just a really interesting subject and also quite interesting how other people work on their projects.
Thanks in advance for your tips!
