Murphy's Laws of Project Tracking

  1. Projects progress quickly to a 90 percent completion factor, and then stay at 90 percent forever.
  2. When things are going well, something goes wrong.
  3. If the content of the project changes often, the rate of change will always overtake the rate of progress.
  4. A poorly planned project will take three times longer to complete than expected; a well-planned project only takes twice as long to complete.
  5. Members of the project team will ignore your progress reports because the reports portray the limited progress that has been made.
  6. When you know you've thought of everything, you haven't.
