Join me on the journey of ClearBank’s transition from a start-up to a scale-up, focusing on the impact on culture and decision-making, and how this affected our engineering teams. As ClearBank grew, it faced the challenge of maintaining its innovative culture while integrating more structured processes to manage its expanding operations and ensuring regulatory compliance. We will explore how ClearBank has learned to manage the balance between autonomy and process, particularly within its engineering teams, who faced increased demands due to departmental expansion and a complex regulatory environment.
I’ll outline ClearBank's strategies to manage this growth, including how it adapted its decision-making and operational processes to sustain innovation and support growth. I’ll share practical insights on managing team dynamics, fostering knowledge sharing, and finding the equilibrium between innovation and operational stability.
Attendees will learn about ClearBank's approach to scaling up engineering teams, maintaining a balance between rapid innovation and the need for structured processes, and how these approaches can be applied to other organisations facing similar challenges.
