Per the Agile Business Consortium, business agility allows businesses to adapt quickly to market changes; respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands; adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality; and continuously be at a competitive advantage. The primary reason for moving to Agile is to achieve faster business value and keep you ahead of the competition. Agile is built for change - fundamentally, it is about creating Business Agility. It enables the enterprise to deliver projects more efficiently, with relentless focus on business value and providing the highest return on investment. Whether it is a software project, a new service offering or a new product, Agile’s twelve principles and three pillars (transparency, inspection, adaptation) are designed to reduce money spent on undesirable or unusable features which were built based on outdated requirements.
