It is the foundation for our evolution as a digital business. The award recognises the hard work and commitment of our team in delivering this in five months to a high quality.”
Anthoula Madden – Chief Digital & Insights Officer Pladis, Silver in the Fast delivery category
‘The quality awards show that the principles of quality management are as applicable to a small innovative start up project as a major transformation within a large enterprise. They are about how you deliver as quickly as possible and as well as you can within the constraints you have. For Sports & Wellbeing Analytics, adopting the principles helped us to keep absolute focus on what was really important – delivering a game changing innovation that could genuinely and positively impact the welfare of elite athletes.’
Chris Turner – CEO Sports & Wellbeing Analytics Limited, Gold in the Innovation Category
