I have enjoyed reading this phenomenom named “Parkinson’s Law“,
“Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”
Tomorrow I will use this articule in order to align some behaviours that are not helping the team.
In addition, the second sense of the Parkinson’s law:
“Data expands to fill the space available for storage”
reminds me that the people who wrote the RFP I’m involved now, were aware of this law.
They did something easy: to limit the content of the answers to 3 pages in order to avoid this effect of having thousand of words that do not say nothing.
