Ron's Favorite Laws
Note :Details about each law can be seen by clicking on the name of the law.
My favorite laws are as a result of a long career in information technology: programming, systems analysis, and project management.
Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity
Parkinson's Law: Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.
and then there is my own law , which of course I call Kuhnel's Law.
Kuhnel's Law of Estimating Government Computer Projects. Make your best guess and multiply it by two. Then double it.
Note: This is similar to Phelps's Laws of Renovation, which states "Any renovation project on an old house will cost twice as much and take three times as long as originally estimated". I lived by Kuhnel's Law during a long career in government service as a data processing executive. It never failed me. After retirement, when I got into renovating old houses I developed a lot of respect for Phelps. His law worked as well as mine. For more on the derivation of Kuhnel's law click here.
