Agile approaches are designed to provide organizations with a combination of the immediate benefits of having fitfor-purpose outputs, as well as a number of long-term benefits for the organization overall, including:

» more efficient business processes
» reduced overheads in ongoing service and productbdelivery
» greater customer satisfaction
» stronger competitive advantage
» higher employee retention rates.

The success of Agile approaches creates a dynamic in theborganization that feeds off itself. Departments arebencouraged to interact and communicate with each otherbmore often, which means that an iteration planning sessionbwhich was intended to identify upcoming work can also
become a forum where staff exchange organizationalbinformation and share ideas. Employees feel morebempowered to influence and improve the organization,bwhich motivates them to proactively think about other waysbin which their work can be done more efficiently. Everyonebinvolved in the process gets the satisfaction of seeing realboutcomes from their work, which can create anbenvironment that is focused on outcomes delivery insteadbof paperwork generation.

All of these factors mean that Agile approaches can create abclimate of productivity, delivery and possibility that willbbetter position the organization to respond to inevitablebinternal and external changes. This can create a morebsustainable environment to move the organization forwardbin a service-driven global marketplace.
