When establishing a project there are certain criteria that need to be observed whether a minor project for personal growth or an advanced research project for which you asking for community funding.
By establishing solid project requirements and structure you ingrain a methodology for achieving projects into all the members of the community.
The rules for this methodology should be based on solid business, psychological and exhaustively tested methods of project planning. The project system should be cultivated to avoid procrastination, burnout and frustration, while promoting creativity, motivation and efficiency. The methodology itself should be reviewed after each project to improve it or specialise it for particular project types.
