The most important lessons you will get about your software will come from customers. Agile teams are able to get software into their hands quickly by only building just enough software to get valuable features delivered. The principle of "YAGNI," short for "You Ain't Gonna Need It," serves as a reminder to avoid over-thinking and over-architecting. Since agile teams are also experienced at delivering software on a frequent basis, your business can respond and deliver better software based on customer feedback.

In today's fast-paced business environment, companies are constantly pressured to adapt to changing market conditions. Companies that produce software increasingly turn to agile development practices to help them stay competitive. Agile processes are highly collaborative, iterative and all focused on the rapid and repeatable delivery of software. Many practices, such as pair programming and regular retrospectives, may appear on their surface to slow teams down. However, the benefits to organizations of "going agile" far outweigh the costs. In this slideshow, Paul Infield-Harm, director of product development at Cyrus Innovation, explains why.
