Management has developed its own "truths," or laws, based on real experience in the real world. You may have seen or heard these without realising that they are laws. That is, they really are true! Here are three of the most well-known and most often encountered by managers:


Parkinson's Law


Work expands to fill up time.


Pareto's Law 80% of__ is due to 20% of___. As in:


80% of the ideas come from 20% of the staff.

80% of the problems occur in 20% of the clinics.

80% of the budget is spent on 20% of the population.



Murphy's Law


Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
