About this Guide

Who created these template files? In some cases Econsultancy has created the templates. In others we have gone to leading experts in the relevant area and they have provided the files. Details of those people are given where appropriate in the descriptions that follow. How should these files be used? This second release of templates includes a much greater range of documentation drawn from several different schools of thought about web best practice. Because of this there are a couple of things you should be aware of: 1. Naming conventions - One man’s PID is another man’s project management plan. In trying to represent different project methodologies inevitably we’ve come across contradictions and overlaps in what documents are called and their purpose (particularly project start up documentation). Please bear with us and read the template descriptions below for guidance. 2. Template overload - If you tried to use all of our templates in your next project you would probably drown under a mountain of paperwork, so it’s up to you to pick and choose the documents that are most useful to you. Significantly, in this release we include an “Agile Toolkit” which you’ll find useful if you’re working in a more streamlined and iterative way than traditional project management.
