Murphy's Laws of Meetings


Mitchell's law

Any problem can be made insoluble by holding enough meetings to discuss it.

Hendrickson's law

If a problem requires many meetings, they will eventually become more important than the problem itself.

Old and Kahn's law

Meeting efficiency is inversely related to the number of participants and the time spent.

Committee Dynamics Law

The less enjoyable you are from attending a meeting, the more likely you are to be involved.

Falkland rule

When there is no need to make a decision, you must not make it.

The law of triviality

The time spent on discussing any item on the agenda is inversely proportional to the amount of money discussed for its implementation.

The first law of commission dynamics

Commission on commission and commission drives.

The second law of commission dynamics

The less you enjoy being a member of the commission, the more you are forced to become one.

Hendrickson's Law

If the discussion of a problem requires many meetings, the meetings, in fact, become more important than the problem itself.

Lord Volkland's rule

If there is no need to make a decision, you must not make it.

Fervex's law

Any facts given in the discussion are good if they give the desired result.

Mancnoton's rule

Any worthwhile argument made by a bureaucrat must be capable of being expressed in a simple declarative sentence that is undeniably true as long as it is expressed.

Job postponement rules

1. The postponement of the assignment is useful because it makes it possible to reduce the amount of work and shift the responsibility for this postponement to another (for example, to the manager who set the deadline).

2. The postponement of the term reduces the stress, since the expected quality of work is reduced as much as the efforts made in the first term will be carried over to the second, shortened term.

3. In the case of postponing the term, a person gains a lot in his own (and others') eyes, since tension increases the degree of significance of the work itself.

4. If you do not postpone the deadline for the task, including additional tasks; then an overworked worker can focus on only one task.

5. The rescheduling of the assignment does not give people boredom, as it reminds them all the time that there is still something very important that needs to be done.

6. If the need to finish work is postponed before it is completed, you can not do it at all. The word is always given to the one who shouts the loudest.

Rayburn's rules

1. If you want to live, be cool.

2. If you want to live in harmony - agree!

Dispute law

Never argue with a fool - people may not notice the difference between you.

Patton's law

A good plan today is better than a perfect tomorrow.

Swipple's rule of precedence

The one who shouts the loudest is given the floor.

Harrisson's postulate

For every action there is an equal opposing criticism.

Seneca's rule for the helmsman

When a ship does not know which pier it is heading to, no wind will be favorable for it.

Karl Marx's law

The individual violinist rules himself, but the orchestra needs a conductor.

Rogers rule

The project will be accepted only when none of the members of the commission can be blamed in case of failure, but if successful, everyone will be able to apply for promotion.

Bachmann's inevitability theorem

The greater the cost of executing a plan, the less likely you are to abandon it - even if it turns out to be untenable.

Consequence

The higher the prestige of the people behind the plan, the less likely it is to be canceled.

The "hurry-and-wait" principle of Loposhaisky

Came early in the morning - already canceled.

You break into a cake to come on time - you wait.

Delayed - hopelessly late.

Axiom Gourdes

They save minutes and hours in meetings.

Eleventh commandment

Don't kill, don't steal ... Don't create a commission.

Kenedy's commentary on the commission

The commission is twelve people working instead of one.

Morris Conference Act
