3 Key Principles of Project Management

  1. In experimental or exploratory projects, predictive methods are less likely to be effective than incremental, iterative approaches that present the client with progressive deliverables and then make adjustments and course corrections as the work proceeds.
  2. Teams of self-motivated, skilled practitioners are more likely to succeed and to feel rewarded and productive in self-directed teams in which individuals take ownership of specific deliverables and then devise their own methods of achieving them.
  3. Constant and close collaboration with the client and sponsors of a development effort is more likely to succeed than projects in which the client participates in a front-loaded requirements process and then disengages until the end product is delivered.
