Oxford Innovation’s ‘Agile in Cornwall’ project has been nominated for an award in recognition for the work it has carried out over the past 18 months with Cornish software companies.
The organisation, which delivers the convergence-funded Grow Cornwall programme, will discover whether it has won at the Agile Business Awards, to be held in London on October 5.
The awards ceremony will follow a day of conferencing where Oxford Innovation’s Michael Barritt will be speaking about the Agile in Cornwall programme and the benefits it has brought to the businesses involved.
Agile is a process whereby new product development is delivered in a more efficient and dynamic way, bringing tangible benefits to all parties.
UKNetWeb director Toby Parkins said: “Oxford Innovation’s Agile in Cornwall programme has transformed our business with the creation of 11 new jobs from an existing team of 5.
“Our turnover and profitability has increased by well over 300% within 18 months as a direct result of adopting Agile and in over 10 years of being in business I can’t think of any other public sector intervention that could have had such an amazing effect.”
The shortlist will be announced in September.
