Murphy’s Law


A supposed law of the universe that "Anything that can go wrong - will go wrong" when you most need it not to.

Project Manager Usage Context

Often spoken by project managers to express that no matter what they have planned for, Murphy's Law will most probably still strike their project with something of relative certainly not panning out as expected. 

E.g. “We got the best person in the country to do the design, a week later they won the lottery, decided to retire and now we’re back to square one – that’s Murphy’s Law”

Comments / Tips

The more you plan and cater for things that could go wrong in your project, the more you decrease the chances of Murphy's Law affecting your project.
