Whether you’re freelancing or running your own agency, effective project management has a large impact on the success of your web design projects.
However, developing your personal approach to project management can take time and experimentation — even trial and error. If you’re just starting out, you might feel obligated to extend the scope of a project to please your clients; or, if you’re not too familiar with scheduling, you might assign too many resources to the least impactful tasks of your project.
These types of mistakes are simple to make, but can come at the cost of time, money, or even your client’s trust.
With all this in mind, have you considered how starting your projects off on the right foot, and planning your web design workflow, can help you run client projects more efficiently? Taking the time to learn the fundamentals of project management can make the difference between a project that’s successful and one that’s not — so it’s important to brush up on the basics to ensure your web design workflows are as productive, and profitable, as possible.
