As companies shrink. From thousands → hundreds → tens → down to just 1-2 people.
You’re stripping away all the “undifferentiated” functions. Like legal, finance, sales, etc.. and even in many cases, design and engineering.
The people inside the company focus ONLY on the secret sauce. The part that makes your company stand out. Every undifferentiated function (eg. paying payroll, running servers, etc..) gets outsourced.
