Summary
Will Ballard explains how small teams turning into large teams often do more than change size- they change structure. Growing teams often adds rules, managers, meetings, processes, and policies aimed at preventing mistakes rather than capturing the best outcomes. He talks about a set of constraints focusing on freedom, responsibility, and what it really takes to acquire talent.
