Parkinson's Law


Definition: Parkinson's Law is a humorous, cynical look at corporate life according to which work (in organizations) expands to fill the time available for its completion. Managers want to multiply subordinates, not rivals, and they make work for each other.
As a result, companies are growing just for the sake of growth in numbers of employees and people become busier and busier, even though they are neither becoming more successful, nor are they making (more) money.
