At present we are working with Nexus Framework with 9 teams. Apparently we are looing to add more team (3-4) who would be working for the same Product and will have same Product Backlog. 

Since Nexus guide suggests to have 3-9 team for a Nexus. I am not sure how to scale with additional teams. 

Could you please share your experience working with more than 9 teams in Nexus? 
 

Thank you

I would question why you need so many teams and if there truly is a single product. I've rarely seen cases where more than 4-5 teams were necessary or appropriate for a single product. The right way to scale may be to decompose the product into multiple products, where each product may be applying LeSS or Nexus to scale to multiple teams working on that product.

Why "apparently"? Who wants these additional teams and is making this decision?
