Here is the list I go through …

  • DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE END USER
  • TRUST DEVELOPERS TO MAKE GOOD DESIGN DECISIONS
  • HOPE FOR A SILVER BULLET DESIGN
  • BUILD FOR EVERYONE
  • LAUNCH & FORGET
  • DO NOT DEFINE SUCCESS
  • AVOID ALL CONFLICT
  • BELIEVE YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE TO SELL YOUR IDEAS
  • PLAN FOR PERFECTION
  • VALUE PROCESS OVER THE PRODUCT
