[thelist] Web Development Methodology

We take the time to survey materials such as their existing web 
presence, print collateral, mission statement documents, etc.

Clients who provide a design brief usually make some mention of goals.  
A well written brief is quite specific about goals.

For the initial client meeting we always draft a list of goals for 
discussion.  Sometimes we end the meeting with a completely different 
list.  The point is to provide a starting point for discussion.

The majority of our clients appreciate that we take time to understand 
what is important to their organization.

If a client isn't clear on their goals, how can they evaluate your 
success in helping to achieve them?
