This book, Leading Small Teams, aims to share leadership and project management lessons Paul Onu acquired over the years in the course of his 9-to-5 work and startup business ventures.
“Small” in this context is a metaphor for few team members, paucity of funds, limited resources, and challenging market environments — all the elements every startup business has to deal with during the early stages.
For a startup, you could either end up working with friends, colleagues, freelancers, remote workers, etc. — each of which comes with their own idiosyncrasies, ranging from distractions, lack of focus, limited commitment, and limited contributions in terms of ideas and efforts.
