You realize that every development path for complex technology presents new uncertainties and challenges. You regard every project as a unique puzzle that can only be solved by working on many levels at the same time. Communication is crucial, and you’re as comfortable talking to the client’s steering group as to the engineers on the job. One thing is certain: if you’re in charge, everyone knows what their task is and the deliveries are made according to plan.
