Project Management Proverbs

Copied from a prof's lecture notes.


From a signature (unknown source): "The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the available time. The remaining 10% takes another 90%."


Finally figured out where the term 'herding cats' came from: "... oversees six first-rate programmers, a managerial challenge roughly comparable to herding cats". http://www.thok.org/intranet/index.html
