Doubling your Scrum teams does not double the output
We have a flawed mindset believing adding more people helps. What if five teams are the magic limit?
I bet you recognize the scenario where someone says, “We can’t deliver what you want. We need more resources”. Imagine Bob and Sarah who wish to scale up.
- “We are required to produce 30 units. And each team can produce five units.
- We currently have only two teams,” says Bob scratching his head.
- “To produce 30 units, we need six teams then”, said Sarah.
