C. Northcote Parkinson, an oddball with an odd name, was a British novelist and historian whose output ranged from Napoleonic-era military fiction to a history of sea-borne trade. But his major claim to fame was Parkinson’s Law which began a delightful series of books about how organizations make decisions, particularly bad ones. Here are some of Parkinson’s best-known laws:
1. ‘Expenditure rises to meet income’…
2. ‘Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion’…
3. ‘The matters most debated in a deliberative body tend to be the minor ones where everybody understands the issues.’
