The Quality Triangle

There's a concept called "The Quality Triangle". It dictates the following:
You are given the options of Fast, Good and Cheap, and told to pick any two. Here Fast refers to the time required to deliver the product, Good is the quality of the final product, and Cheap refers to the total cost of designing and building the product. This triangle reflects the fact that the three properties of a project are interrelated, and it is not possible to optimise all three – one will always suffer. In other words you have three options:
- Design something quickly and to a high standard, but then it will not be cheap.
- Design something quickly and cheaply, but it will not be of high quality.
- Design something with high quality and cheaply, but it will take a long time.
In other words...consider the dynamics of what you wish the end result to be. Oceansites Web Design understands this balance and have extensive experience in getting your project completed within whatever parameters you have at hand.
