Many of us in the web design and development fields have worked, are currently working, or will work as part of a team on a project. This can provide invaluable insight for how we ourselves would build a team of our own, were we the ones calling those shots. Make no mistake about it, team building is a delicate science. You must have the right mix of skills and abilities to have the team and the project live up to its full potential. But what is the right mix? That is the subject of this month’s Community Roundtable discussion.
If you had the chance to create the proverbial Dream Team for your next web design/development project, would you get the mix right? Is there an optimal equation, so to speak, to solve this perfect team question? Using your experience as a member of a team, or just your experience with what it takes to fully pull off a web design project, could you assemble all the right pieces to get the website on its feet by the required deadline? And the more pressing question…
