5.3 recognize at least two approaches to scaling Scrum.

Examples of approaches are LeSS, SAFe, Scrum at Scale, Enterprise Scrum, Spotify, Nexus. We are aware that some of these approaches are actually not scaling Scrum but embedding Scrum-like work processes into a different structure. Students should be able to recognize these approaches by having indicators; for instance, having a single Product Owner for multiple teams points to a LeSS-like adoption; having a Nexus team is pointing to Nexus, etc.

5.4 describe at least two reasons why an organization might decide not to scale.

Examples for reasons why not to scale: learning curves; adaptivity and agility; information loss; communication clutter.

5.5 identify at least two techniques for visualizing, managing, or reducing dependencies.

Examples: This Learning Objective can be fulfilled with any technique from any scaling approach. Example: Refinement with multiple team representatives; Scrum of Scrums; Kanban; Overall Retrospectives.

5.6 describe at least three benefits and drawbacks of feature teams and component teams.

Examples for benefits of feature teams: Product Backlog can contain actual user requirements or stories; less dependencies between teams; planning is sped up because of team capabilities. Examples for benefits of component teams: compatible with existing structures; consistency within
components; knowledge transfer about technologies easier.
