Excalibur (UK) Ltd was formerly the Innovation Services Division of the Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre - one of the largest and most effective innovations centres in Europe. This division itself was formed in 1991 to take the message of the importance of innovation and continuous new product and service development to the wider business community.
The division utilised the highly effective Sword Innovation courses to train managers in creativity and innovation skills in an “action learning” format, which postulates that the best way to learn anything is to “do it for real”. Using this approach the Division rapidly established a nationwide reputation with a large variety of companies and also with numerous Business Links and other business support organisations.
Excalibur (UK) Ltd inherited this reputation and today is recognised as a key UK provider of innovation programmes and new product/service development process consultancy.
Some of our clients include:
A key part of Excalibur’s management approach is to “practice what you preach”, i.e. we also practice new product and service development. In the past few years we have successfully developed a number of new “products” including the Shield Programme for budding entrepreneurs, and innovation programmes aimed at “social enterprises”.
