Clever, amusing and revealing, Parkinson's Law is as relevant now as it was on its release in 1958. Basing his observations on the premise that `work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion' Parkinson explored the realities of human behaviour within a bureaucracy. He didn't theorise, but instead wrote wittily about how people really function in organisations. In C. Northcote Parkinson's Parkinson's Law Leo Gough illustrates the continued relevance of Parkinson's insights with contemporary examples and shows how the observations can be applied to businesses of all sizes. Modern readers of Leo Gough's interpretation of Parkinson's Law will discover: * Why increasing their sales is not always a good thing; * How to get meetings and committees to work the way they want them to; * Why, like it or not, looking good can make people more successful; * How to cope with toxic bureaucrats; * Why most management theory is a waste of time. This brilliant interpretation of a twentieth-century classic will help managers cut through the management speak, eradicate unnecessary tasks, learn to network properly and negotiate their way through bureaucracies with a light heart and an open mind.
