Publisher's Comments

It's up to the designer to not only do it right but also to let the client see what's being done, and to capture ideas, track progress, and make sure everyone is singing from the same page. Consultant Brown describes the ten basic deliverables as belonging to three basic types, thereby making it much easier to sort out who gets what and when. He works in layers with user needs documents (personas, usability test plans and usability reports), strategy documents (competitive analyses, concept models, and content inventory) and finally with design documents (site maps, flow charts, wire frames and screen designs) on top. The logic of Brown's ideas works well at a practical as well as theoretical basis, because he shows why user needs and strategy documents come first, before planners start playing with all the cool software.
