Abstract: Internet technology has been used by most of the organisations in the world today. One of the primary vehicles of information gathering and dissemination in today|s world is the organisational website. This research evaluates the performance of the present TV3 (a popular private television station in Malaysia) website. By means of an online survey and a few focus group discussions, it also identifies the website viewer requirements and their corresponding importance level. Subsequently, the technical requirements are identified that can fulfill the viewer requirements. A House of Quality (HOQ) is built to find the relationship between the viewer and technical requirements. The Quality Function Deployment (QFD) exercise provides the prioritised technical requirements, which are expected to guide the TV3 website development and maintenance team in its future website redesigning project. The findings of the research are also expected to provide some insight for other organisations in similar need.
