Team Dynamics Analogy

| Comments

Found an interesting post over at Darren Hobbs blog about adding more team members to a project. Good analogy, if only the managers would catch on.

Being careful to distinguish between metaphor and simile, it came to me today that software projects are like turkeys.

You can’t achieve the same effect when roasting a turkey by doubling the temperatuire and halving the cooking time. Similarly a project cannot have the number of people doubled and the duration halved and get the same result. The rate of knowledge crunching is not increased by adding more people.
