Building a leading engineering culture​

Our client, a top tier European Bank, found its engineers struggling to deliver and lacking motivation due to a culture that tended to work against it rather than for it.

The challenge

Our client, a top tier European Bank, found its engineers struggling to deliver and lacking motivation due to a culture that tended to work against it rather than for it.  We were engaged to create a strong and engaging Engineering Culture, a way of working that permeated not just through the technology organisation but also in the way engineers engaged with business and support functions.

Such a culture was be challenging to build given years of outsourcing engineering work and therefore a lack of strong engineering focus internally.

Our solution

Our consultants worked with the client on a programme structure that would help build the right culture. 

To embed this a series of ‘change champions’ were identified who were passionate about the new culture, trained, and them empowered to drive the culture, using aspects of all the workstreams, within their teams.

​Our impact

  • A measurable change in the engagement and motivation of engineers, resulting in a higher performing function delivering better business outcomes
  • Successful monthly “Engineering Days”, bring together all of technology to connect, learn and experiment
  • Launch and sustained engagement of strategic Engineering Communities, attracting new members to develop and share best practice
  • A structured learning path from graduate to MD
