In Peopleware, DeMarco and Lister write:

  • Count on the best people outperforming the worst by about 10:1.
  • Count on the best performer being about 2.5 times better than the median performer.
  • Count on the half that are better-than-median performers outdoing the other half by more than 2:1.

What nearly everyone who has read that remembers is the following:

  • The best people outperform the average by 10x.
