Custom development projects can be undermined by a variety of factors, such as faulty software, unhappy users, lack of documentation, and so on. This article presents a methodology to help you identify, define, and solve the true problem, use the right tools for the job, and build the right solution the first time. It shows you how to use a prototype to negotiate user requirements, and provides a roadmap for managing a project, complete with descriptions of the specific deliverables to provide at each phase and insights into identifying and making key development decisions, solidifying project goals, setting and meeting user expectations, and tackling projects in manageable installments.
