The Importance of Information

Information is invaluable in any field, and it is especially so in one structured about information itself, such as web development. As Shane Diffily talks about in the A List Apart article Educate Your Stakeholders!, everyone in the entire website creation process needs to be sufficiently well educated about the process and the decisions involved in it. I’ve seen many cases where the process skips from a client requesting a website to the client being asked for a description of what they want. They don’t know what they want. It isn’t that they’re unintelligent, it’s just that they’re often uneducated or poorly educated at best about the process, the possibilities, and what they need to consider when making decisions. Somewhere along the line, the client needs to get the information necessary to make informed decisions.
