Project Reviews

Why do reviews?

Today’s digital business is based on trust. And every day, agencies and freelancers work hard to deliver their best results to ensure the success of projects for their clients. A typical project consists of several layers that all have to work well together in order for a project to create value for a client.

These layers are:

  • Concept
  • Design
  • Code

Most of these are easy to understand for a client.

If a concept is thoroughly thought through and makes sense, anybody willing to invest a minimal amount of time and understanding gets it. So that’s solved easily.

Design is a bit more tricky because there are other factors to argue about, like colors and choice of font. Most of the time it’s a rather simple question of “Do I like it?” or “Do my customers like it?”.

Design also works in the ways of “Do my customers understand it?” which is then called Usability or User-Experience.

But all in all it’s easy to grasp because you see things you can argue about.

But code is hard to grasp for a client.

Having simple situations where you click a button and it does nothing are easy to solve: It’s a bug in the software.

But even when everything works fine there is a feeling of uncertainty that sits with the client, because they cannot “touch” the code or even look at it. And beyond that, the gritty details often surface later down the road, when out of a sudden, your site cannot be updated anymore. Or the technological solution you picked (or the one that was picked for you) leads into a dead-end.

The agency point of view

As an agency you know you did the right thing. Your experts spent days and days on building something that makes sense to the client, yet the client has a hard time determining the value of what you built.

But when building software there are often many ways to achieve the same goal. And this is where competition tries to nag on the things you built, arguing that the way you built an application is not up-to-date or “wrong”.

The problem is that when the competition claims your code is “wrong”, they play you because they should say your code is “different”.

And the client is now left between chairs because they cannot rate the quality of your work, remaining in doubt.

Doubt is the complete opposite of trust.
