An important goal of the 2 pizza rule is to prevent groupthink, a phenomenon that occurs when a large group’s need for consensus overrides the judgment of individual group members.

The rule also discourages HiPPO, an acronym that stands for the "highest paid person’s opinion" or the "highest paid person in the office." HiPPO describes the tendency for lower-paid employees to defer to higher-paid employees when a decision has to be made.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
