Adding Someone Can Hurt The Mix

Too often, we think if we can add another person to a project team, it will make things better, overcome issues, etc. It seldom works. In fact, adding to a team can hurt unless that person is 100% needed and has a clear responsibility that doesn't overlap with anyone else.

The fewer, the better is the rule:
The fewer people assigned to a project the better
The fewer the people doing a similar job on a team, the better

The fewer the people, the more ownership, the less politics, and the less confusion.
