[...] Three critical time management techniques defined by (Dumb Little Man Tips for Life 2009) would be: Schedule the big rocks, lets the small stuff flows This means that the milestones are first set for big modules to be developed and then the small modules will be developed, ultimately integrating the modules to be a part of big module.
