It takes about a year to launch a redesigned website for a college or university. This includes discovery and strategy, information architecture (IA), user experience and creative design, content management system (CMS) implementation, and content creation and migration.
Many of our clients are keen to move more quickly than that. It certainly can be done. Here are three ways to shave a few months off your upcoming website redesign project.
We do not advocate speed at the expense of quality, and we certainly are not suggesting these techniques are right for everyone. However, in the right situation, with a committed team and with proper planning and project management, you can accomplish a successful website redesign launch in seven to nine months.
Bill McLaughlin Chief Operating and Financial Officer, Head of Project Delivery I've spent my career in project-based organizations large and small. I enjoy projects because I like variety, creative thinking and problem solving. At the core I'm a consultant, trying to find the best way forward for each unique client or situation. I don't always implement content management systems, but when I do, I prefer Drupal.
