Dunbar’s Number

The Tipping Point.

It’s a famous book by Malcom Gladwell. The average person is going to have a network of 125-150 people.

This principle, called Dunbar’s Number, hits home when we see the average size of churches.  They often sit around 150 people. It’s a capacity thing.

Organizations grow to the capacity of their leader.

But Gladwell points out that there are exceptions to the rule. Some people go far beyond Dunbar’s Number.
