Sometimes, people forget that the various UX deliverables on a given project are strongly interrelated. By this, I mean that a deliverable influences and informs downstream deliverables, while the downstream deliverables should support and expand on those that were created upstream. This also means that when something new is discovered, all of these fabulous deliverables should be updated as needed. The larger the project, the more important this becomes. Makes sense, right? Right!

Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen, sometimes due to time or budgetary constraints, sometime due to poor process or laziness. “Checklist Thinking” for UX Professionals: Retaining your sanity in a complex project further explains the importance of process when it comes to deliverables and offers some strategies for making is happen. It’s worth the quick read, if only as a reminder of how all these documents are (supposed to be) tied together.
