I’ve written about Keith Hennessey before, but this post is particularly interesting: He writes about the internal bureaucratic arrangement of the Bush (43) White House staff. Of special note: Bush 43 had about two dozen direct reports, which is more than one would see in a typical organization, but not that many more, given that he was at the head of an organization (the U. S. federal gov’t) that is not only undeniably huge, but arguably the most influential on earth. This fact suggests that ~25 people is the outer limit of the size of an effective team.
