    Here’s another complementary list but this one is very specific to Project Management:

    – Define Project Success Criteria
    – Identify Project Drivers, Constraints, and Degrees of Freedom
    – Define Product Release Criteria
    – Negotiate Achievable Commitments
    – Decompose Tasks to Inch-pebble Granularity
    – Plan to Do Rework After a Quality Control Activity
    – Plan Time for Process Improvement
    – Don’t Schedule Multitasking People for More Than 80 Percent of Their Time
    – Use Project Estimation Tools
    – Estimate Your Project Tasks Based on Effort, Not Calendar Time

    Note that each one of the above is an article in this series: http://www.pmhut.com/?s=%2221+Project+Management+Success+Tips%22
