Traditional HTML website planning techniques fall short when used to plan a Drupal site. In an article comparing WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Plone, Idealware said "The flexibility of the [Drupal] system means it's important to think through the best way to accomplish what you want before diving in." Drupal Websites: A Planner's Guide is being developed to help you "think through" what you want and need before diving in with development decisions.
The plan is to make it available for DrupalCon San Francisco 2010, if not sooner. If you want to be notified when the site is ready, please contact me via the contact form and I will send you an email when it is open.
