In her introduction to Collaborative Web Development: Strategies and Best Practices for Web Teams, author Jessica Burdman quotes industry leaders as saying, "Web development is crazy." Throughout the remainder of the book, Burdman breaks the process of Web development down to manageable chunks and offers techniques to help you successfully complete Web projects without pulling your hair out.
This isn't a book about development tools or programming languages--it's a user manual to the process of managing site development from conception to completion. The focus is on team development since almost all such projects of any scale involve a diverse collection of professionals. Brief interviews with seasoned team leaders add real-world perspective to the topic.
Burdman provides frameworks for analyzing both the project at hand and the team you have at your disposal. She tackles the process with a discussion of getting the project off the ground in an organized and complete manner. The material here is presented in plain English instead of with the usual heavy emphasis on flowcharts and management theory. She also doesn't stop with the summary of a single project cycle but covers client issues, team communication, and ongoing team cultivation as well. This book may not make all your projects go smoothly, but it will sure help. --Stephen W. Plain
Topics covered: Project scope definition, cost budgeting, team assembly, content planning, team and client communication, client education, quality assurance and testing, team evolution, and case studies.
In Collaborative Web Development, author Jessica Burdman shares the successful secrets of managing a web project, including collaboration, communication, and budgeting. The book provides many case studies of both successful and unsuccessful Web sites, and will help web-project managers pick and manage their web teams so they can sell their projects and needs to executive managers. The ultimate goal of this book is to make a "level playing ground," offering a similar vocabulary for developers, marketing people, and IT managers, so everyone is "bought in" to the Web project.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Burdman lays down a solid foundation for establishing a serious Web development team. She identifies key team members and their individual responsibilities, she will assist project managers to break down and assign specific project responsibilities, and she will help companies to better manage their people and business policies. Burdman offers noteworthy advice on handling client matters such as payments, their involvement in the Website design process, dealing with roadblocks, thorny issues, and meeting deadlines.
A central theme emphasized throughout the book is good communication at all levels of development. Burdman will assist companies large and small to work through the many issues they will face, including many that will stretch their patience thin. The accompanying CD contains a number of helpful demoware development programs and other essential tools to meet a variety of Web development needs. Highly recommended for any Web design and consulting business environment!
1) the roles and responsibilities of the individual members of the project team,
2) an overview of the planning process that should precede any web site production,
3) a framework for communication between team members, third-party suppliers and the client,
4) how to build quality assurance into web project development, and
5) a comprehensive guide to useful resources on the web.
While a previous reviewer criticized the comprehensive resource guide as a mistake, pointing out that these resources are mostly out of date, I see it as a positive and laudable effort to introduce the web's fundamental strength (that of linking to other resources) into traditional media. This in essence is what the author means by "collaborative web development": a direct collaboration between team members, third-party suppliers and the client and an indirect collaboration with other suppliers through resources and technologies available via the web. More authors should follow suit!
I'm in the process of working with writers and project managers who are coming from the more traditional publishing world. They are hungry for prescriptive formulas, guidelines, templates and checklists. This book (and CD) has them. They also want streamlined overview information about the technical side (the stuff they are really scared about), and this book has that too. I have seen nothing else like this book and for the moment the material is still fresh and relevant.
Ms. Burdman has lots of real life experience and her writing shows it. The anecdotal information and the interviews that are included further support the practical impact. Where the book begins to fall apart is that the interviews are not representative enough of the rest of the world. Many of the cited people fall into a small circle that she is acquainted with. IMHO, this dilutes the material's impact.
Also, given that this book is about a world that moves really quickly, Burdman's publisher made a big mistake in handling the resource information in the appendix. The software products cited are already out of date, and with each day this type of information becomes more and more irrelvant. It would have been better to point readers to an on-line resource center that is kept up-to-date.
If you are hardcore and have been doing work like this for years, this book is not for you. If you are looking for an organized and practical framework to use if you've been shooting from the hip, the book does the trick. Absolutely essential reading for the novice web project manager!
I have actually found the book to be quite useful as I've reviewed it, I am personally involved in a start-up large scaledevelopment project and some of the issues raised and profiles have been very instructive.
