The Best Size for Your Planning Team

Planning is an important part of children's ministry.  Whether you're preparing for an event, talking over existing programs, or creating something's a vital part of the process.

When you plan, it's important to have the right number of people in the room.  Which leads us to the question, "What is the best size for a planning team?"

Most leadership experts agree the best size is 3 to 10 people.  This is the optimal size if you want to stay focused and accomplish your objective.

The scale of the team should also be based on the importance of the topic.  If it is a minor topic, 3 people can probably take care of it.  If it is a major topic, then bring in up to 10 people.
