There are many benefits to setting deadlines when taking on new projects, but here is a list on 5 reasons why deadlines are important in a project.
- Allows for great communication
Deadlines allow for great communication in the team. You may have more than one person working on the design or development part of a project, so it is crucial not to overwrite each other. Deadlines allow your team and the client to be on the same page with a clear path of where your current status is and what is the next part to be done.
- Always time to make mistakes
There is always time for amendments. Adding time in for mistakes and revisions is important when setting your deadline. Including the ability to notice mistakes, especially in the early stages, allows time to rectify them early, without affecting the timeline. Noticing mistakes too late, can make a project take longer than expected, when the issue could of been resolved near or in the beginning.
- Time for amendments/revisions
A deadline is good for both your team and the client, because it explores creativity. There is plenty of time for the web designer to meet the clients expectations, because there is more free time to explore your personal creativity and create more ideas you think the client would appreciate. The more ideas you have, the more likely your client will be impressed. On the other hand, the client has time to decide if any amendments need to be made, but the good thing about this is that is does not affect the work flow. Then, if you finish before/on the end date when expected, the client will most likely be satisfied and there will be a high chance they will return with more projects in the future.
- Delays are less likely
There are many people involved in the development of a single website and work in various areas. These include colours choice, image selection, navigation, development of mobile applications, coding, etc. If delays occur in one area, this signifies delays in the entire project; it is like a domino effect. Deadlines ensure that work is carried out in each department in an easy, timely and responsible manner.
- Time management
The most important is time management. Majority of businesses will have more than one commitment on the go. Setting these deadlines help a designer/developer establish clear time frames to help accommodate to each clients timeline.
