Agile Cornwall case study: How the EU is helps Cornish companies get Agile

Wednesday, 9th November at Skills Matter, London

This meetup was organised by Skills Matter In The Brain in November 2011


Agile Cornwall case study: How the EU is helping Cornish companies get Agile

Software companies exist everywhere - even in remote regions like South West England. Since 2010 software developers in Cornwall have benefited from an European Union supported Agile adoption programme. Companies producing medical devices, e-commerce solutions, video streaming systems and bespoke embedded software - to name a few - have been helped to adopt Agile development.

This case study will look at how the programme came to be, what the companies did to get Agile and the lessons have been learned from introducing Agile to more than 10 companies. Finally we will discuss how the programme could be a model for future Government support to the software industry.
