Agile is more than just a methodology, it is a powerful way to transform an organization to enable it to achieve more. Most of the time, when we are asked to help with Agile transformations, we initially deal with the IT departments only. Notably, however, Agile transformations within other divisions of the organization prove to be invaluable as well.
Organizations who are open to engage other departments in the Agile transformation process report seeing organization-wide benefits as soon as changes are implemented. Faster delivery, higher responsiveness to market pressures and changes, transparency of the development process and improved communication- vertically and horizontally- within the organization are some of the key benefits achieved when an organization goes Agile. See below for a more comprehensive discussion of the benefits.
