                            The following story by author Francis Hooke is obviously a fictional story used to demonstrate the principle of hidden costs, and the implications of failing to account correctly for the project as a whole. In this imaginary story, Francis assumes that the project manager, who is identified as "Bob", was a permanent member of staff who had been with the company for many years. He imagines that once Bob completed the project he would be moved onto the next, or otherwise returned to routine business-as-usual work.
