Project vision document: let the vision come true
The first step to a successful project is thorough preparation. It is essential to synchronize the project vision with a customer and transfer it to a development team. We need to be sure that everybody strives for the same goal and understands why and for whom a particular project has been set up.

With a tight schedule, it’s tempting to buy some time at the expense of project vision development. It might seem insignificant at first but lead the project in the wrong direction later.

We will take a look at a basic plan for a project vision document preparation which can help you keep the process under control. Also, I will share with you examples from my practice illustrating challenges and ways to solve them.
