Yesterday I attended Scrum Day Europe , which had the theme 'Scaling Scrum'. Perhaps predictably, the only one to consider the case: 'natural growth' was Gunther Verheyen . Everyone who spoke after him was actually talking about how to impose/implement Scrum when you already have lots of people. Startups have the luxury that they can think about scaling before having to do it and can make/choose a framework that they can settle- as opposed to get-crammed-into.

In fact, on closer inspection, the managers I came across were not actually against learning, they are just against 'wasting time' and unaware that their push to save on wasteful activities such as study time was in fact destroying productivity.
