Webb's Law of Project Complexity

  • Webb's Law of Project Complexity: "All good projects go from simple to insanely complex, then back to simple after a required epiphany."
  • Corollary to WLPC: "If the project never gets to the insanely complex stage, it is probably not worth doing."
  • Second Corollary to WLPC: "If the epiphany never comes, the project will likely be an insanely complex failure."
  • Chandra's Comment on WLPC: "You can't outsource the epiphany."
