Agile methodologies (because this is what the term Agile means) allow teams around the world to increase their productivity and significantly reduce the time needed to achieve business results. They belong to the “easy to learn, hard to master” work methods, i.e. easy to learn but hard to master.
Agile allows you to achieve truly phenomenal performance – not only in the programming industry – but also requires a lot of awareness and discipline from the team. By putting independence and cooperation above rigid processes and hierarchy, it allows you to transfer responsibility to the team, which results in a greater commitment to work and better results.
