Website plans focus on defining the content and functional requirements, as well as the design (visual, structural, layout, and interaction) aspects of the site. The website plan conveys what you want for the site after it is built. It drives the schedule, required budget, and skills; and provides a way to manage expectations for all involved. The more detailed the plan, the higher probability that the site will meet the customer's requirements.
To plan a website, you need 4 types of plans:
- Website Plan
- Project Management Plan
- Development Plan
- Maintenance Plan
