Every organization and process has problems. Finding these problems and fixing them is critical to staying competitive. Detecting and eliminating issues in the development process is a central feature of agile development. Agile teams reflect on their work in regular retrospectives, as often as after every iteration. Teams zero in on problems that are slowing them down or making delivery unreliable. Since delivery cycles are short, new problems can be detected quickly before they can threaten the project and the organization.

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.
