Oof, 2:1 ratio is a tough pill to swallow. I've seen a lot of redundancy in businesses where there will be an engineering manager, project manager, and scrum master. 3 individuals that all should be resolved into 1 role of engineering manager.

The equation definitely helps quantify what generally is a gut feeling. Great stuff!
