There are several reasons why organizations want to migrate to Agile, the prominent reasons being faster time-to-market, improved quality and productivity, and increased ability to respond to changes. Apart from these reasons, the need to reduce cost of software development and improving project visibility are also reasons for many companies to adopt Agile practices.
Though Agile has largely been practised as a software development approach, experts believe that Agile is meant for and can evolve into a powerful cultural and business paradigm.
For organizations to be successful in embracing Agile, a good understanding of not only the Agile concepts and frameworks is needed, but also a clear understanding of ‘Why Agile’. Asking this question and finding an honest answer to it will help organizations to avoid some of the pitfalls and disappointments in adopting Agile
The biggest challenge, but often less worked with, is the shift that organizations need to make in their management practices and culture, moving from mechanistic organization to an organic one.
If Agile is used only as a development approach for software and is limited to how a project team works, the organizations may fail to reap the full benefits of Agile.
