It’s so easy to fall into a rut of blind progression when you take on new projects in web development. Your efforts to finish quickly and move on can obscure the importance of effectiveness. You start going through the motions, and before you know it, you’ve spent a lot of time doing work that’s just…average.
Focusing on the Details
Instead, try to focus on the details. Strangely enough, you’ll find that the details are sometimes where you can take a fresh look at something you’ve seen a thousand times at a different angle. Whether it’s a quick weekend task at home or a big business project you’re managing, working smarter from the beginning can save you from working harder to compensate in the future.
Attention to detail plays a huge role in swaying this tension. For instance, take a look at athletic teams. Vince Lombardi said, “Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” A group will only make it as far as each of its members is willing to take it. Of course there are different roles for every person, but as long as the output of those roles is maximized, productivity is maximized.
Increased Efficiency in Web Development
As a developer, I’ve witnessed both ends of the spectrum, specifically in terms of website maintenance. Having to revisit old code for maintenance tasks can be either an overwhelmingly difficult experience or merely a simple task. Which side that coin lands on is usually determined by how cleanly and effectively the site was developed initially. At Gatorworks, we have methods in place to ensure the accuracy in our web development tactics and eliminate faults from final products. This prevents an unnecessary use of our time and saves money in the future.
Our team takes pride in our increased efficiency and effectiveness at every stage of the project lifetime. We are constantly evaluating our processes, finding weaknesses, making adjustments, and streamlining the progression of our projects. It takes careful planning, commitment from every team member, and the guidance of team leaders. With those components as the priority, reaching high goals and exceeding expectations are things that just happen. When you take care of the little things, the big things take care of themselves.
