Small vs Big

Small Fly Team

As for me difference in Small and Big team this is what their members know the best.

In a Small team everybody knows what he is responsible for, and he is doing this and more often even more then this. “Who else can do this if not me?”

In a Big team everybody knows what other responsible for. “I will not do this because this is not my responsibility.”

If you have more then 2 Boss over you, them you probably work not in a Small team otherwise enjoy your work, since during evolution Small team will inevitably grow to Big team with all inherent to it attributes - bureaucracy, politic games and stagnation.

What do you get for your work? Are you getting only money? Obviously answer is “No”. Money is a short term thing; working with the other people you also receive their knowledge. From them you may get how to:

  • Design scalable systems
  • Organize development process and manage all the things
  • Communicate with other
  • Writing good code
  • Making business
  • How to live finally

So you income = money + knowledge. But you will spend money fast while knowledge will stay with you for a long time and will help you make new money.

And when you getting knowledge remember, that now you are the “Chosen” bacause of Knowledge can’t be without you.
