William Hill wins “Best Use of Agile in Private Sector” Award in Partnership with Radtac at At Prestigious Management Ceremony, The UK Agile Awards

Leading Bookmaker William Hill was celebrating after scooping the “Best Use of Agile in the Private Sector” Award for its internal Software Development Programme ‘Trafalgar’ at the prestigious UK Agile Awards held at the Bloomsbury Ballroom on Thursday 20th November.

Radtac has worked in partnership with William Hill since March 2012. Initially providing William Hill with Agile training, Radtac is now supporting their long-term objectives by embedding Agile culture into the heart of their organisation.

William Hill’s online management team has embraced agile methodologies and this has in turn led to an improvement in delivery, focused on putting the customer at the very heart of the business. Project Trafalgar has been one of the many innovations that has derived from more agile workings within William Hill. Project Trafalgar is continuously evolving in order to put the customer at the heart of everything that William Hill do.

It was noted by the judging panel, "that after a previously failed waterfall methodology, this finalist (William Hill) gained everyone's belief in an Agile approach by regaining stakeholders’ faith and buy-in."

“We have embraced Agile as a fantastic management tool over the past few years and we would like to think that our customers have benefitted greatly from this,” said William Hill’s Online CEO Andy Lee.
