Unlike the CONTEXT MAP, a large-scale structure is optional. One should be imposed when costs and benefits favor it, and when a fitting structure is found. In fact, it is not needed for systems that are simple enough to be understood when broken into MODULES. Large-scale structure should be applied when a structure can be found that greatly clarifies the system without forcing unnatural constraints on model development. Because an ill-fitting structure is worse than none, it is best not to shoot for comprehensiveness, but rather to find a minimal set that solves the problems that have emerged. Less is more.
