Hi there, could anyone provide some guidance on how Nexus / SPS manages external dependencies once identified during Grooming / Spring Planning? I’m specifically interested in domain knowledge (people) for example is it recommended that these people are drawn into the team(s) for the duration of dependencies? Thanks.

If you are referring to dependencies which are external to the Nexus itself, then the short answer is yes. A Nexus of teams must have all of the skills and resources necessary for turning product backlog into Done increments of potentially releasable work.
