Two pizza rule
« on: December 04, 2012, 10:36:16 AM »
"... groups suffer from something called "groupthink," which means they tend to lose the benefits of independent thought and just agree with each other. Everyone ends up patting themselves on the back rather than creating something great. Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos solves that problem with a two-pizza rule.

According to productivity and ideas blog the 99u, Bezos uses pizza as a metric for choosing the size of his teams. Basically, if a team can't be fed be two pizzas alone that team is too large. The brain can't handle a lot of people, so it's not a surprise that smaller teams tend to work better."

Guess it's going to be a pretty small team if I'm on it... or some big NY pies...

It looks like there will be two people on our team, I am good for at least one whole pie.  :D
Time is money, money is power, power is pizza and pizza is knowledge.
