Improving Your Business and Products the Agile Way

Updated: Apr 20

You already have a product, and you already make sales of it, so why switch to an agile methodology? How can Agile Consulting Services help your business perform better?


Agile Methods Unearth Better Ways of Doing Things


Using an agile methodology for your business processes, procedures, and product improvements provides your company with nine distinct benefits. These include:


  • Creating a superior product that changes with the times and needs,

  • Improved quality control that integrates feedback and involves stakeholders in the improvement process,

  • Adds flexibility by enabling project managers to divide a massive project into milestones,

  • Reduces the administrative workload, but increases the project’s productive executing time,

  • Results in improved team morale by enabling team members to independently learn project management skills,

  • Results in increased customer satisfaction because those buying your products get a say in how they’re developed,

  • Continuous improvement of the company and products adds functionality while fostering collaboration between departments and individual employees

  • Increased return on investment (ROI) from product superiority.


Why Use an Agile Consultant


While the best way to learn is by doing things, trying to self-teach yourself agile methods and convey how to use them to your company provides your business with no knowledge base. You would not have any resources to ask questions or for advice.


By using an agile consultant, you have the resources you need to readily obtain advice about methods. You can learn what worked for other companies similar to yours and what worked for the type of company you want yours to become.


An agile consultant has worked with many businesses and can help establish new procedures in your company. The staff of Agile Consulting Services trains your employees on the methods involved and the “why” behind them. They will also know in what situations agile has failed, so you don’t make the same mistakes.


Agile Provides Quicker Positive Change


Many methods exist for business improvement, but how many provide positive results in just six months? That is the quickest turnaround agile can manage and it performs much more quickly than other improvement methods. Organizations with more complex issues can require up to three years for improvements to take hold.

The overall methodology of agile encompasses many business improvement methods. The most common of these include:


  • Scrum,

  • Kanban,

  • Less,

  • SAFe,

  • Lean development.


Other methods exist and some of these go by many names. The Toyota method, for example, also goes by the names lean manufacturing method and just-in-time system (JIT system). Choosing randomly for your company won’t provide you with the benefits of choosing the appropriate agile methodology for your business type.
