The two-pizza team

The concept of the two-pizza team may sound familiar. This is Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos’s rule that every team should be no larger than can be fed with two large pizzas. It’s an important but misunderstood concept. It’s not just about having fewer people on a team. That does have its own benefit for communication. A self-sufficient two-pizza team also means each team member has to cover more than one discipline.
