I've been a consultant for over 8 years and during that time, I've lead a few projects, been on a few and helped to clean up a few more. I have also been a part of some failed projects, which honestly, if you're going to fail, fail big. Anyway, during my time I have created a set of rules that I carry with me on every project. These rules are kind of like the 10 Immutable laws of security, they transcend all technology. I decided to share them in case others want to share their rules or comment on mine. Enjoy!
