Arguably the MOST important step in your whole project
Rolling out to users who will take ownership of aspects of the site is very very important
Don’t give your project a bad rap – just when it’s about to succeed:
5 Things to keep in mind:
Usability for all the applications for managing. Make sure that whatever solutions you pick, the interfaces are easy to use. Sometimes less features is better.
Sufficient training and support. Have a plan for training and support on ALL of the applications – and how they work together.
Organizational communication. Who’s responsible for what. Make sure that ongoing – everybody from IT to Marketing to Communications knows wh’s responsible for the apps
Review and Iterate – The Web Site is a process – not a product make sure that ALL through your development process and your Rollout that phase two items are noted and then iterated. Start small, and grow.
