Laws of Project Management.

  • No major project is ever installed on time, within budget, with the same staff that started it. Yours will not be the first.
  • Projects progress quickly until they become 90°/o complete, then they remain at 90o/o complete forever.
  • One advantage of fuzzy project objectives is that they let you avoid the embarrassment of estimating the corresponding costs.
  • When things are going well, something will go wrong.

o  When things just can’t get any worse, they will.

o  When things appear to be going better you have overlooked something.

  • If project content is allowed to change freely, the rate of change will exceed the rate of progress.
  • No system is ever completely debugged: attempts to debug a system inevitably introduce new bugs that are even harder to find.


  • A carelessly planned project will take three times longer to complete than expected. a planned project will take only twice as long.
