Kick Ass Kickoff Meetings

What is the one thing we must get right to make this website/application worth undertaking?
Unless you are working with an organization that has already developed a detailed project plan, this question should generate a lot of different answers. Especially if you talk to different departments with different vested interests. Knowing where the specific tensions exist will inform specific activities you can do to define priorities and explore feasibility during the kickoff meeting.
How does your organization define success? What is the role of the website/application in achieving that success?
Nothing happens without a larger context. In tough economic times it can be an uphill battle just to secure the budget for a project, and it can be easy to lose sight of why the project was needed in the first place. Knowing the difference between project goals and organizational goals will help you define priorities and scope. If a specific functionality isn’t critical to organizational success, it’s a “nice-to-have” and a good candidate to leave out of your kickoff meeting discussion, and possibly the project altogether.
What aspects of the internal culture or external environment could put this redesign/application at risk to fail?
There’s something that everyone thinks is going to derail this project: They just haven’t told you what it is yet. The sooner you know, the better. Have they tried this before, only to fail? If so, why? During the kickoff meeting, you must establish how this project is going to be different than other previous, possibly unsuccessful, attempts. Knowing insider history and the team’s unique understanding of the market in which this website will thrive are the building blocks of differentiation.
(Follow up question) Assuming we mitigate that risk, what would exceed your wildest dreams?
The flip side of the previous question is that everyone has a fantasy version of the project in their heads. You never know what great ideas might be lurking in those fantasies; ideas that haven’t been shared yet because they were considered too unrealistic or outrageous might be the most exciting ideas.

Kick Ass Kickoff Meetings

During project-based work, every freelancer, agency, or internal department has “the kickoff meeting.” In theory, this meeting should have all the energy, excitement, and potential of the opening salvo of the Superbowl. Project team members should be inspired coming out of that meeting, full of ideas, and a desire to begin exploring solutons. Agencies and freelancers should begin to see their clients as friends and collaborators with unique insights that can only come from frank, open discussion of the design challenge at hand. But this rarely happens.

Every meeting is an opportunity. Why waste your first one?

In reality, kickoff meetings range from somewhat boring to straight-up awkward, and can be an expensive reiteration of project details we already know, assembling the most expensive, busiest people and generating little measurable project benefit. We have to start the project somewhere, but something is often missing in the kickoff meeting; something that is an obvious part of the football analogy—analysis and strategy. Before that kicker sends the ball across the field, coaches spend a lot of time reviewing tapes, applicable statistics, and more—what we in the web business call “research.”

Quality Athletic Websites

Quality Athletic Websites
By Brady Nord | Published August 27th, 2010 in Inspiration

There are not many aspects in life that can bridge gaps between religion, race, and nationality. Although, one that has proven time and time again is sport. There is not a city across the world that you can visit without seeing a team jersey or logo somewhere! Because of this, many sports clubs and teams have a unique challenge of designing their web presence to appeal to an international arena more so then the rest of us. I have assembled what I would consider out of the box and quality athletic based websites.

Whether you love or hate the brand or team, I hope you would agree that these companies are standing out in comparison to what the rest of the field is doing.

19 Reasons Why I Love Manchester City

Manchester City Understand Social Media

“I think this is due to how the club perceives itself within the footballing world. Some clubs may see themselves simply as a brand that exists separately from the day-to-day lives of their supporters and because there are no real direct revenue stream, do not see the value of social media.

For various reasons, others may feel that social media is not a worthwhile endeavour for them and somewhat of a minefield that is best steered clear of. At City we’re proud of the way that the club is able to reach out to supporters and we’re proud of the way the fans have reacted and embraced what we’re trying to do.

We’re also keen to ensure that the club remains at the forefront of new developments in the field of social media whilst it is imperative that the club’s soul, the very reason why people fall in love with Manchester City, is retained”.

David Beckham for England Manager

It sounds crazy but the FA could do worse than appoint David Beckham as their new England manager. Is there anywhere that he isn’t these days? Supporting the troops in Iraq, smoozing with Prince Harry and Price William, cheerleading England more than Fabio Capello was during yesterdays painful 4-1 defeat to Germany….

As well as being arguably the number one celebrity brand in the UK (and he’s up there in the world rankings), it made me think…

“In these tough times, people are more likely to trust David Beckham than David Cameron”.

Run the national football team, fix the economy, win us the world cup bid for 2018, help organise London 2012. At what point in the future might he also let us know that he’s actually planning to run for prime minister?

Las críticas al Jabulani podrían sepultar el patrocinio de Adidas

Las críticas de jugadores como Lionel Messi, Luis Fabiano o Julio César al balón oficial del mundial, el Jabulani, podrían sepultar el patrocinio de Adidas a la competición, por la cual pagó cerca de 50 millones de euros.

Dentro de las actividades de Adidas como socio del mundial, destaca la exhibición del balón oficial y emblemático de la competición en todos los juegos, pero las críticas de ciertos jugadores podrían actuar como un arma de doble filo para el gigante deportivo.
