Price’s law: 50% of the work is done by the square root of the number of employees.

by Jul 12, 2023

Price’s law: 50% of the work is done by the square root of the number of employees.

So: If you have 10 employees, 3 do 50% of the work.

If you have 100 employees, 10 do 50% of the work.

If you have 10k employees, 100 do 50% the work.

I think this law has some truth to it, when I look around in companies.

Imagine a company where integration and automation are part of the daily operation.

Here, the 50% of work won’t just fall on few employees. The workload will evenly distribute among everyone, increasing the productivity and reducing the pressure on the critical few.

Remember, it’s not about working harder, but smarter.

You think Price’s law is true?
