Not much data there. I guess I'll have to dig up Hackman and Vidmar
(1970) to find the data. It's clear that you shouldn't marry a woman
under 25, though. (http://www.intuitor.com/statistics/SmallGroups.html)
Or use "majority rules" in groups with an even number of members.
Nothing there that supports "Team size data showed that for hundreds of
teams doing the same size project that takes 11 months for team of six,
will take 17 months for a team of 10." I like small teams, but I'm not
so happy with data presented as scientifically proven without any
Interesting statement: "So if you’re looking for the best size for a
team, consider an odd number close to five. But remember the number is
just one factor. Social sensitivity and being able to read emotions are
attributes of successful team decision making. Consider the number and
consider the members."
