In this session from Agile On The Beach Conference 2017 entitled ‘Law of Diminishing Marginal Returns – A story of team sizes’, Myriam Hamed Torres looks at project team sizes and whether increasing their size helps to bring timelines forward, or deliver all scope in tight deadlines.
Myriam covers how well known Economic Laws and Theories demonstrate the dangers of this practice, and how Agile approaches these risks and the considerations that need to be taken into account before increasing the size of the team.
Myriam is currently Software Development Manager at Thomson Reuters and has a wealth of experience as Agile Project Manager in various industries. She is extremely passionate about delivering successful results as well as coaching teams to help improve the way they work. Myriam is a DSDM Advanced Practitioner and Certified ScrumMaster supporting many Agile communities.
