When it comes to managing an embedded design project, everything you learned in kindergarten was wrong. The rules to follow for project success are:

  • Sharing is NOT Caring; Selfishly protect your resources.
  • DON'T wait your turn; Interrupts in a design are desirable.
  • DON'T finish what you started; Evaluate every approach often and abandon one quickly if it is not working out.
  • Everyone CANNOT be president (or king or boss); choose a leader and follow him/her.
