Tired of working at a big company? Looking to create your own startup? Managing smaller teams, budgets and timelines are much different than when you had levels of management or a large company behind you. You will need to take a completely different approach when creating your own team.

 - Seal Team 6 vs the Fab 5 

- Right people, Right role 

- Who’s in charge? 

- Who is your cheerleader?

- We don’t need a stinking Project Manager  (Yes you do) 

- Communication is even more important for a smaller team 

- You will need a better firing policy than hiring policy
