This semester we were grouped into teams of ten. This is way too many if the object is to achieve optimal communication and collaboration between the members.
It is extremely difficult to coordinate meetings with ten people, and it is necessary to have everyone there in order for everyone to feel like a part of the process.
With too large of groups, it is almost impossible to delegate projects as effectively and communication is present between some members but not others.

Additionally, members do not become connected to one another the way they do in smaller groups of four to six. In effect cliques and factions can form which is counter-productive.
This sort of connection helps all members of the group actively consider the effect their words and actions have on one another.
