We're excited to announce Mode 2 Meetup episode 15, sponsored by Infinity Works!

Mode 2 is a regular meetup about IT innovation within large companies across central Scotland.

Each meetup will feature two short talks and a chance to connect with IT innovators in a relaxed environment with free beer/wine and pizza. The talks for this meetup are:

Always curious about fancy new tech, gaming and e-sports fan and also a marathon-movie watcher.

"Is business analysis dead?"

The role of the traditional business analyst is changing. Adoption of agile ways of working, technology advancements in the financial services and the increasing focus in customer experience, require to rethink this role.

2: Tim Leslie, CTO, Float

Tim joined Float as CTO in January - a little company with a big heart that helps small businesses survive and thrive through effective cash management. Prior to this he managed the development team at Sumdog. He loves his family, his garden and his tractor very much.

"Building a Collaborative Engineering Culture"

Those of us who have been fortunate enough to work in a collaborative environment know how productive it feels. If we’ve been unlucky we know collaboration isn’t always the default state. The bad news is collaboration doesn’t just happen when you put the right people in the same room. The good news is a collaborative culture can be intentionally created. In this talk I will explore why a collaborative culture is so important and I’ll share my take on how to foster one.
