This is a complex question. I have definitely been on projects that were understaffed, and all the team members were overworked and overextended. On the flipside, I’ve also encountered lazy employees in the same organization that simply made getting work done harder for everyone else. So I don’t think it’s as simple as increasing or decreasing the number of employees. I also think it’s a slippery slope to downsize the workforce in exchange for increasing the number of contractors. Sometimes contractors are the right solution, but other times the people on the inside know the issues best and are better suited for the task.
