  1. PMP Solution 38

    Student Syndrome is a syndrome when people start to apply themselves only at the last possible moment before the deadline. Parkinson´s Law happens when work expands to fill the time available for its completion. The reason to increase the duration of an activity while crashing is due to additional risk introduced and at some point adding to many resources may increase duration due to knowledge transfer, learning curve, additional coordination and other factors involved.
