Join Patrick Rauland for an in-depth discussion in this video Pick a proposal strategy, part of Ecommerce: Scoping Projects.
- In the next chapter, we're going to be talking…about key considerations for an eCommerce site.…And if you do every single one of these,…it'll take you dozens of hours,…and you'll have to find some way to get paid for that time.…So, before we do that,…let's look at a couple of different ways…to create your proposals for clients…that have big or tiny budgets.…We're going to talk about three styles of project management…and how they can fit into your scoping process.…The first is Waterfall, the second is Multiphase,…and the third is MVP.…
Let's begin with Waterfall,…and that's what you typically think of…when it comes to project management.…This is perfect if both you and your client…have experience with eCommerce.…In a Waterfall approach, there are hundreds…or thousands of tasks, and you cross them off…one by one, in order.…So, you'll get all of the requirements,…then you'll do all of the design.…Next, all of the development.…Finally, you make sure it works and then you launch it.…It's a very linear approach.…The Waterfall method works great for some projects…
