How to make big projects work?

In this article, Herbert Lovelace shares the 4 basics that he follows, in order to get big projects to work.

His 4 step system is:

  • Detection: Making sure the problem is clearly identified.
  • Preparation: Figuring out what to do and how to do it.
  • Implementation:  Keep it as simple as possible and have a rollback strategy.
  • Reflection:  Learn a lot after the project is over about what we might have done differently

He also gives us these quotable quotes :

  • “With systems, if you can’t explain it easily, don’t implement it. “
  • “Project histories, like kitchens, tend to be cleaned up when shown to guests.”

What’s your experience? How do you make big projects  work?
