How to Specify Projects Early

1 min read


From now on, this is our minimal document for software specification.

A good project brief contains⠀

  • Kickoff
  • Product strategy
  • Management
  • Functional spec
  • Implementation
  • Maintenance

Why this post?

In our life as a development team we have seen way too little good project briefs.

Let’s change that!

We made this brief template for anyone free to use. So we can all get better at running projects.

Applying our Theory

We used this document already in our own product, a self-hosted video sharing software.

We already had the kickoff meeting with the developer. We added his input into these slides.

You find the documents in the downloads section.
