The Power of One-Pizza Teams

The way to go far and go fast when setting strategy

There is a saying that has been incredibly formative for me in how I think about teamwork:

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Whether I was coding, selling, or launching something, I could do things fast by myself. However, it was only when I had a team that meaningful outcomes were achieved.
