Prezi Tech Talks February feat. Scaling Tech Organizations

19:00 Alexander Grosse (@klangberater, VP of Engineering at SoundCloud): Lessons Learned From Scaling SoundCloud

SoundCloud has grown from 40 to over 200 employees in a little more than 2 years while more than doubling the traffic to the site each year. How do you keep and develop a company culture while growing that fast? How do you make sure that you build the best teams? Additionally there is suddenly something called management. This talk will give an overview of the successes and failures experienced during that time. 

19:40 Zsolt Kulcsar (@kulcsi, CEO at Integral Vision): Value Oriented Work Environment

In the last years we designed and implemented many successful B2B projects at Integral Vision using Scrum. We have realized that besides the agile methods, it is crucial to grow and sustain a trustful environment within the team, and with the customers. Trust is a catalyst. If there is trust, we have everything we need to work efficiently, to have great results, moreover to keep the well-being of our employees and clients.

But what are the pillars of building trust? How to grow and develop as a successful company along humanistic values? What are essential components of an inspiring environment?

      if there were given best practices how to build a company then 75% of the startups wouldn't fail :) what you can do is understand what problems did they try to solve, how they approached it and what was the outcome--this is what alexender talked about.

    Alexander shared some great thoughts, but I guess he needed more time to elaborate the details.
