- LeSS Huge framework (applies to eight or more teams, also as a typical pattern but not a hard and fast rule)
Larman and Vodde make the point that there is no magic behind the number eight as the demarcation between the two LeSS frameworks. Leveraging the concepts of empiricism, they have come to the opinion, through experimentation, that eight teams seem to be the number where it begins to make sense to implement the larger scaling techniques of LeSS Huge. They also make the point that, under certain circumstances, such as situations involving very complex goals with multisite and inexperienced foreign language teams, it may make sense to employ LeSS Huge techniques with fewer than eight teams.
