I am referring to the Web development process, very often referred to as the six-stage process:

We learned this as a part of John Horn’s “Starting and Running a Successful Website” course and it makes it easier to break down this HUGE task of creating a website so easy.

  • Assessment (preliminary questionnaire, competitor analysis)
  • Analysis and Planning (site goals, target audience, roles and scope)
  • Design (Main template, content, site map)
  • Production (drafts with page look and feel and functional aspects)
  • Testing and Publish (functional, usability testing, etc)
  • Maintenance (SEO, visitor tracking, analytics, etc.)

I am in the process of reading Web ReDesign 2.0: Workflow that Works (http://www.web-redesign.com/) and it too does a great job to explain this.
