Once you’ve adapted a plan to implement agile, you immediately have an advantage over the competition.
Leveraging the value of agile will improve your business delivery times, limit risk, and improve the ability to adapt to changes. Progress is measured incrementally by the production of working software which increases the overall business value. Product/unit testing in the early stages of the product life cycle also allows faster discovery of potential bugs or for the discovery of new code that may improve the efficiency of the product. Neither of which can be achieved using waterfall or other none agile methodologies.
Agile strategies allow development teams to experience a lightweight process that supports a focus on the rapid delivery of value. Organizations experience a significant reduction with the overall risk associated with development. Meaning business value is maximized not only throughout the development process but incrementally as well.
Additionally the customer will witness the transparency provided by agile development teams, and will realize the immediate benefits provided by daily real time updates. Above all organizations are beginning to see that agile methods turn out software at not only a faster pace, but doing so bug free.
The agile advantage!? Getting to market faster with an improved product….
