REAL results

Our work has received recognition with awards for both impact on innovation culture and practical results achieved.

We originally engaged with +ADD to help us further develop our technology innovation agenda and add value to our transformation plans.

NWG is investing heavily in ‘innovation with purpose’ and its part of our philosophy to engage, co-create, an encourage fresh thinking from our supply community.

+ADD has worked on a wide range of initiatives with us and has become part of our innovation community.

As well as assisting in aspects of innovation strategy and culture, the team has delivered practical open innovation projects such as gamification competitions, hackathons, design sprints, and challenges across various aspects of our operations
— Nigel Watson, CIO of Northumbrian Water Group

In November 2016, +ADD won the GEM Partnerships award for most impact on corporate innovation culture.  The team delivered 14 projects in 12 months with substantial impact across the national utility organisation.

This year a sensor analytics technology developed on a Hackathon delivered by +ADD Strategy has recently gone on to achieve national recognition and win industry awards having been rolled out across an asset infrastructure of £4 billion.  See our news for more information

+ADD to work with Microsoft and NWG to solve Hard problems in the Utilities sector.

The +ADD team are have been support a major event in the Utilities industry.   The event itself was held at Newcastle Racecourse in July and saw a wide range of Utilities, supply chain companies and communities collaborating to solve major issues and explore opportunities together such as Leakage, Flooding and others. 

Our work included supporting a hackathon, developing and delivering a major sprint, launching and delivering two national STEM competitions for young people.

Over the week we engaged over 240 participants in our initiatives including 62 companies, 7 schools and recruitment of 2 sponsors a range of high profile industry and public sector leaders.

We also facilitated a forum on barriers to innovation for a national body.

Our work saw creation of diverse human focussed solutions to reduce network leakage ranging from integrated sensors and deployment systems, map informatics for prioritising works, new 'lab in a box' field analytics tools and even consumer facing awareness and engagement programmes.

Following the success of the event we are now we are working with the NWG team to progress concepts and prototypes established in the initiative.  We are also continuing to work on a host of other innovation programmes.
