Also as each employee will work in a silo, the chances of the total results working smoothly with each other diminishes.

There are exceptions, of course. I have been working at a company for 18 years creating and maintaining a suite of 26 different programs. I am the only one who touches the code. Our company is very successful, we even weathered the economic slump a LOT better than most, and are doing gangbusters this year too.

Excellent work and looks like a great future VBClassicGuy. I think though that the question is for a team to work on individual projects in one piece of software.

you alone handling the entire coding enables you to make sure it all works well together. I don't believe a team that does not collaborate would be able to insure that as well as you.

Its always good to get the project completed by a team. There are many benefits with little side effects. The main benefit being you can remove a single person dependency from the project and the team can help each other going smoothly.

a team manager has no real input on a teams job he must understand what their doing obviously but he doesn't need to know the specifics, his job is making the team work and get the job done if the manager needs a specific task done he will delegate it to a senior member of the team

A manager position can be single member project and thats good as the manager has a seperation layer
