This talk presents Sky Betting and Gaming’s journey from establishment of a core ‘engineering-driven’ people and culture model, to replication throughout the UK team and now internationally across the group. How to create a learning environment, and encouraging meaningful growth by empowering teams and individuals to drive their own progress. The implications for classic HR-driven ‘performance management’ of embracing an engineering culture. For learning and development, establishing continuous technical capability pathways instead of linear IT career paths (the coder vs manager fork), and finally, the requirements for an inspiring physical environment.
