There have been many famous and thought-provoking management articles over the years, each offering unique perspectives on management. Two of the most famous articles are "Parkinson's Law" by C. Northcote Parkinson and "The Peter Principle" by Laurence J. Peter. Parkinson's Law states that work expands to fill the time available for its completion, and bureaucratic organizations tend to grow in size and complexity over time, regardless of the amount of work actually being done. The Peter Principle suggests that employees are often promoted to positions of incompetence based on their performance in their current role rather than their ability to perform in a higher position.
