    You basically answered your own question.

    You can develop your own content management system, or find a web host that offers one as part of the package.
    DIY content management, you have to do some planning to have your product be scalable.
    Out-of-the-box content management ham strings you by making you work within their templates and backend system.

    As a web designer you should know how to work out with your client what the look and feel will be.
    Storyboard the whole site.

    The rest I usually play it by ear.

    The main way we do it is with a database driven approach using ASP, there
    are lots of different technologies. I tend to handcode rather than use DW
    MX. However, doesn't Macromedia have a product called Contribute which
    allows end users to change text and images but not to touch the underlying
    layout. I don't think it is that expensive.

    Chris:

    Yes - it's Contribute, and it's $99. It works on STATIC sites only.
