Cal Evans has snuck in a seventh part of his six-part series looking at what you, the client, can do to help make the relationship and contract between you and your developer better. This new post talks about doing your part.

robably the second most common reason I've seen projects fail is because the client fails to live up to their commitments. No I'm not talking about hitting your payment milestones, I'm talking about delivering your content.

Without everything they need to get the job done, the developer(s) cannot hit the marks you both laid out in the contract. Show them that you're committed to the project by delivering your side of things too.

Don't be the reason that it misses it's delivery date. Also, don't expect your developer to work extra hours to get the project back on schedule just because you failed to meet your obligations.
