Summary

Praise for The Complete Website Planning Guide: A great, accessible and practical guide that you can quickly use to get better results from your next website build. Get to it! 
Would you build a house without blueprints and expect it to be perfect? 
That's how many people go about their web projects, with napkin drawings, spoken discussions, part finished summaries and guides and wonder why it's not finished on time, costs more than it should and people aren't happy with it. 
You can be the architect of your next website project and avoid delays, scope creep, missing functionality and extra costs. 
In The Complete Website Planning Guide you can learn how to easily create blueprints (a scope) for your, or your clients, website that will solve many of the key problems that occur in website development projects. 
After more than 20 years running a design and development agency, Darryl still couldn't find a standard way that clients and developers could outline exactly what they needed to get the job done most effectively. Most briefs or planning methods either focus on general things like platform, hosting and general design guidelines. Many agencies or freelancers still fly by the seat of their pants using their experience to guide the project. 
So he wrote this guidebook as an instruction manual to create useful site plans without missing out important requirements or needing to be overly technical. 
In this simple step-by-step guide, he walks you through the process of establishing what the website really needs to do and shows you how to do it. 
If you want to build your next website before you pick a theme and try to wedge your needs into it before you tell your designer to copy someone else's site read this book and create your website plan. 
If you are a freelancer or agency developer don't take on a client or quote a new project without helping them plan the site properly. 
Learn how to create a plan so you can avoid overruns, scope creep and lost money. 
This is the very first step you need for your next web project, download the free templates and resources, and join the facebook group where you can get advice on working through your own plan.There is also now a companion Workbook tht you can purchase to work through step-by-step all of the process, with additional in-depth exercises and examples. 
What readers said: 
"If you are a business owner, read it, print out the templates and have these discussions with your designers. Trust me, even if you do only a few things in this guide, your outcome will be 100% better than if you just choose your site based on the pretty colours." Ed Pelgen 
"I am a freelancer and this is what i was looking for. Darryl has used his experience in laying out the problems faced by clients and freelancers and also given some templates and methods to follow before starting a new project" Amrinder Signh

    Since the first publication of The Way to Wealth in the 1750s millions of aspiring entrepreneurs have used Benjamin Franklin’s advice to create and maintain profitable businesses. Franklin was a phenomenon – a statesman, scientist, inventor, entrepreneur and best-selling author. Many of his maxims and proverbs have become part of the fabric of western society: "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise"; "Nothing but money is sweeter than honey"; "If you would have your business done, go; if not, send"; "Creditors have better memories than debtors." Franklin died a hugely wealthy man and he is still listed in the Wealthy 100: The 100 Wealthiest Americans in History. In Benjamin Franklin’s The Way to Wealth Steve Shipside interprets Franklin’s text for the modern day. Twenty-first century readers will discover how to:
    • Be the driver, not the drone;
    • Practice your luck;
    • Suppress the desire to acquire;
    • Invest in your number one asset, you;
    • Tackle time thieves.
    Benjamin Franklin’s The Way to Wealth is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Franklin’s insights by bringing them to life with modern financial examples. Shipside’s brilliant interpretation of The Way to Wealth is an inspiring companion to one of the most famous and influential books ever written.

    New IT Technology Issues Facing...

    It's always been known that the job of being CIO is a tough job. One of the reasons that this job is so hard to do well is because we stand on shifting ground. The technology that we use goes out of style and then gets replaced by new technology almost overnight. 
    
     
    What You'll Find Inside: 
    
    CRM NEWS: THE BUSINESS OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING
    PRACTICAL IT CLOUDS: WHAT TO DO AFTER THE HYPE
    UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CIOS TO SHOW THEIR VALUE
    WEB 3.0 IS COMING – ARE CIOS READY? 
    
    
     
    One of your tasks as CIO is to be able to take a look at new and emerging technologies and determine which of these will impact your company. Due to the size of this task, it is often helpful to go to outside sources to get help in evaluating all of the new technologies. Almost all of the emerging technologies involve massive amounts of data. How to store, process, and create results from this data is one critical new technology that all CIOs will have to master. 
    
     
    In the world of IT, big projects make up a lot of what we do. Things like implementing new and novel customer relationship management (CRM) systems or special purpose applications like have been done for the London Stock Exchange are what we do. However, once done, we are then responsible for ensuring that our creations stay up and running. 
    
     
    Decisions are a key part of being a CIO. No matter if it's trying to decide between an Apple based product or a Windows product, these are never easy decisions. As changes have rolled through the world of healthcare, CIOs have been drawn in and have had to make many different decisions about how systems should operate. 
    
     
    Keeping your company out in front of the competition is part of the job of being CIO. What this entails these days is that you need to be able to implement complex-event processing and start to move key business applications to the cloud.
