Re: Sturgeon's Revelation

I vaguely recall on some management course or other a tutor remarking that an AT&T study had suggested that the number of people who really contribute to an organisation varies as the cube root of the number of staff. So a one man band has to be good, but an organisation with 27 people has three real contributors, one with a thousand has ten, and so on.

This is even more pessimistic than Sturgeon's Revelation, but it does explain a lot.
