Workshop: Project Discovery for Website Redesigns


Understanding the full scope of your project is critical to its success. The discovery phase is where your team gains this valuable insight. The right questions can reduce roadblocks, surprises, and ultimately budget when redesigning a website. This workshop will guide you through questions to help you define and achieve success for web-based projects in your organization. In this workshop we’ll walk through questions from these four topics:

  • Goals
  • Process
  • Data
  • Design and Development

We will highlight the key questions that help your team focus in on the details that facilitate success.

Even if you are already past an official discovery, this process is useful when applied to projects at any stage.
