Team organization matters

On team composition and the distribution of higher/lower experience team members:

Even though pretty much any team can deliver results, suboptimal team composition is still a problem.  It’s a problem when teams working on very straightforward projects take longer than necessary.  It’s a problem when teams stacked with senior engineers are neither mentoring junior engineers nor taking moonshots.  Most importantly, these problems are hard to notice because, again, everyone’s delivering results.
