In this Abeceder Quotation Conversation Michael Millward and Professor Vlad Vaiman of the School of Management of California Lutheran University, explore the lessons that can be learnt about team and talent management from the Jeff Bezos quotation “If you can’t feed a team with two pizzas, it’s too large.”
In a wide-ranging conversation Michael and Vlad explore the role of team leaders, team size and why the quality of team players is more important than the quantity of team members.
