The Four Agreements of Project Success | eMagine's B2B Blog

TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

There are some good points here, although I don't agree with number 3: Don't Make Assumptions. Everyone makes assumptions. The trick isn't avoid making assumptions but to make sure everyone knows what your assumptions are so there can be an open discussion of whether your assumptions are valid or not. Learning to recognize and then articulate your assumptions is an important skill for a Web Project Manager, the client and the team.
