Chapter 1. Planning a Web Project > Holding a Kick‐Off Meeting

Holding a Kick‐Off Meeting

Another form of selling the idea, the kick‐off is a meeting to get all the hands‐on people involved. The main purpose for this meeting is to explain the project and set expectations among the members of the team and give them copies of the scope document so they can review and understand fully what is expected. In addition to that, open up a discussion among team members, giving them an opportunity for sharing ideas and honing the plan.

When presenting your idea and defining the project, ask questions of your team regarding feasibility and capabilities. Also, be prepared for their questions — production people and IT folks need details in order to do their jobs correctly. Don't confuse their questioning for “being difficult.” Also, try to understand any issues that are raised. Sometimes, features or functionality are possible but just not practical to create or support, so you might need to suggest a compromise. Work with your team to come up with the best solutions.
