Thokk Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Barb:  Great follow up story to “The Lost Art of Teamwork”.  And what a sad series of events that taught you a lesson in doing your homework before making a commitment.  Most of us have made mistakes just starting out but the good news is we learn from them and become better at what we do.

In the late eighties Prof. R. I. M. Dunbar, in his anthropological studies, discussed optimal group sizes for primates, which seemed to be a function of relative neocortical volume in their brains. He discovered that there is a natural limit beyond which the group's functionality and efficiency begins to deteriorate. For humans, the Dunbar's number seems to be around 150 (Dunbar actually calculated the mean group…
