As far as I understood, the author suggest using the framework described in the book for managing software solutions as a whole. The framework itself is not bad, but the scope, strategy and stru ture planes kinda try to steal away the glory from the good old fashioned software requirement specification document.
As for the framework, Garrett proposes an approach that goes from general to specific, laying out the groundwork first by getting the strategy plane solidified with clear site objectives based on user needs. Once the strategy is clear, the scope of the project can be defined, through functional specifications and a description of content requirements. The next layer up corresponds to the structure plane, where interaction design and information architecture take place. Next up, in the skeleton plane the interface, navigation and information design (in the form of the familiar wireframes) can be designed, leaving for last the visual design at the surface plane.
As a web project manager and product manager for many years, I found Garrett's "Elements of User Experience" a confirmation of the best practices that anybody wanting to succeed at creating successful web products should take into account throughout the pre-production and production phases.
