On one hand, coherent teams with everyone being a friend to the others are cool, especially if you are part of such a team. These teams can move heaven and earth when their members’ skills and talents are properly fit. Self-organized, self-managed, self-controlled, so on. Perfect form of “human capital”.
On the other hand, such teams are atomic and indivisible. And that is terrible if you are a business owner; or a manager of some level outside of the team. Firing a team member — firing the team leaders — firing the whole team — failing the business. Bus factor = 1.
It turns out, that the perfect form of human capital is the worst evil.
