How big should be the team?

We find that a team of 4 to 6 works best. It's large enough to have diverse skills, yet small enough to produce the best results in a short space of time. We recommend to form a team with following skills:
Business - Ddecision maker and people with marketing, PR, sales, legal, finance skills
Tech - People with IT and technical skills
Creative - People with a designer, copywriter, or other creative skills
