What Must Happen for Schedules to Work

The following is Scott Berkun's list on what must happen for schedules to work

  • Milestone length should match project volatility.
  • Be optimistic in the vision and skeptical in the schedule.
  • Bet on design.
  • Plan checkpoints for add/cut discussions.
  • Inform the team about planning philosophy.
  • Gauge the team's experience with the problem space.
  • Gauge the team's confidence and experience in working together.
  • Take on risks early.
