Have you ever been responsible for a big software project? Did it go as smoothly as you'd hoped? Here are 97 short and practical tips from some of the world's most experienced software and product development managers.

These are the realistic secrets that are often omitted or under-emphasized in most global approaches, even the agile ones, or in more academic discussions of the project life cycle. They underscore the principles of getting the job done and include just enough direction to carry out this advice in your workplace.

You would need several lifetimes of experience to acquire the wisdom of these established team leaders from all over the world. Based on the new book, "97 Things Every Project Manager Should Know", edited by Barbee Davis.
