Successful web application development begins with well defined requirements. 70% of all software projects fail because of poor requirements. Second to that are communication issues.
I aim to give you what you want AND what you ask for.
Many employers go with the lowest bid...only to find their money was sunk into poor craftsmanship and they wind up with deliverable shortfalls (nightmares). The time lost on communication overhead further adds to the sense of loss and frustration.
I aim to be flexible unless work on a feature is unreasonable. I will be prompt in assessing change requests, some of which can be accommodated without impacting labor efforts or deadlines.
Generally, I'm more persuadable at the beginning of a project to make changes which have no impact. There's no such thing as little changes for work that's mid-way or completed! As we near project completion, I strictly interpret requirements and contractual obligations.
I pride myself in my ability to translate non-technical features into working feature sets. Deliverables can be measured and proven...and if the requirements are well documented, they should be a basis for assessment.
If you're disappointed in any way, I should know about it before neutral or negative feedback is given. I should be given a reasonable opportunity to satisfy any deliverables you feel are not completely met as described in the requirements.
