Overview: Scaling-up an organization is always a challenging undertaking, and often causes a lot of growing pains. Ubisoft Blue Byte has grown in the last five years, from about 30 employees to almost 300 as of today, and it continues to get bigger. This talk covers the growth strategy, findings, mistakes, and pitfalls we have encountered. We will explain how we implemented the growth to ensure that we have a scalable organization. We will explain the processes that needed to be changed, and the way that growth affected our company culture, by moving from a family-like work atmosphere to a more corporate environment.
