Clear designations, follow steps. Assured buy in from shareholders /sponsor. 

Steps: identify, plan, execute, monitor, close

If have to manage a project i will firstly make sure i have the role players involved clearly identified and follow the steps.

Reviewed project management, the people and stages involved. Also looked at HMM re summary reviewing terms inc critical path,rapid protyping, trade offs re quality time and cost, scope creep: which I hadn't defined before. Early milestones and full breakdown of tasks are important.
