No Fluff – Just Stuff

This site provides useful checklists of all kinds – principles, processes, rules – for work on requirements, projects, systems.
We keep it in a very condensed style, hence the 'no fluff – just stuff' tagline.
This is NOT a encyclopedia on projects. You need to check the sources given if you want to learn more about the respective topic.

Mission, Goals, Objectives, Plans, Intentions, What are we trying to do?

  • offer handy checklists to remind ourselves and whoever is interested, or learn, what to check on as we accomplish chosen tasks
  • collaboratively build a body of knowledge related to work in the fields of requirements, systems, and projects
  • present processes, rules and principles that have passed the test of practice
  • keep on top of our work areas by constant learning (understanding) and writing (be understood)
  • honor nothing but our ancestors, working only for our descendants

… to boldly go beyond adopting best practices by exploring the underlying principles.

We use what we can get. A major influence is our daily business. But there are others, like Tom Gilb, the godfather of several engineering arts, and many more.


This wiki's origin lies in a blog I wrote (Clear Conceptual Thinking).
My friend and nitpicker extraordinaire Dick Karpinski suggested to turn it in a wiki, for everybody could contribute.
