A SkillsCast for this session is not available.
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.
