Even when disregarding any kind of agile principles, having too many people in a single meeting can seriously sabotage its intended goal. Here's how many people you really need 👇
The "two pizza rule" is probably the most delicious solution to this issue. And, while it's not a clear-cut scientific fact that 6-8 people is the perfect amount of attendees for a meeting in any context, it's still recommended to keep this in mind 🚀
Don't take this the wrong way though, some types of meetings are great when including a ton of people. A big group setting can be a great way to bring a team together. Or, when you're checking in on an entire department for instance 😊
We're talking about meetings where tough, yet clear decisions need to be made. Think strategy, positioning, etc. These are the meetings where everyone should walk away with tangible action items 😎
What do you guys think, you reckon this is a valid rule to keep in mind?
