Team Formation - How Big? | Manager Tools

This cast describes how big to size a team when forming it.

We get asked all the time, what's the ideal size for a team to be?

The simple answer is that there's no ideal size - it depends on a lot of factors.

But, we realize that when we get asked, someone's probably got to form a team to accomplish something, and so our answer, though right, isn't initially helpful.

The question probably ought to be, "how big should I make this team I'm forming…"

If you've got to form a team, and are wondering how to do it, this cast starts our answer by giving guidance about how big it should be.
