Law of Diminishing Marginal Returns - A story of team sizes

31 August 2017

In this video, Myriam covers how well known economic laws and theories demonstrate the dangers of this practice, how Agile approaches these risks, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before increasing the size of the team.
