"How is it a good idea to mirror this complexity in the product with complexity in the group of people that develop this product?"

Scaling Scrum is seriously hard, right? How do you work with many teams on one product? How many Product Owners should you have for one large product? How can many teams deliver a "Done" Increment every Sprint? How do you manage the increasing number of dependencies between teams? 

Honestly, we believe that -  in most cases -  scaling Scrum is tantamount to solving the wrong problem. And we say that irrespective of the framework you use, Nexus, LeSS, or SAFe: Scaling Scrum is a contradiction.

In this episode of our podcast, we explain why. And we offer you five strategies to avoid scaling.
