Why the Two-Pizza Rule Works

Smaller teams are more efficient. Why? 

1. They spend less time keeping on top of their timetables 

2. They spend less time communicating ot others about new events and keeping people up-to-date

3. They focus on work, and they do it quickly. After all, too many cooks spoil the broth.
