1. Productivity and customer service
Organizations require an ongoing and consistent approach to achieve better customer service and business outcomes.

The Agile approach helps teams become highly productive through more effective communication, increased collaboration, and increased focus on customer needs.

2. Prioritization capabilities
Agile acts as an enabler to assure that there is an increased focus on priorities, ensuring that teams focus time and energy on high-priority tasks to stay on track.

3. Work quality
In an Agile environment, quality engineering experts across the business tend to coordinate more closely. This helps to improve analysis, working methods, and product quality to increase customer value.

4. Performance
Agile requires organization-wide teams to develop and deliver products or services more quickly to customers through quick release cycles.

The Agile approach also helps to improve employee performance and ensures that deliverables are more inline with customer expectations.

5. Predictability
Customers are generally concerned about predictability, and they expect their vendors and contractors to keep their promises.

With an Agile approach, teams can plan, coordinate, and deliver services with greater predictability and an increased level of commitment.

6. Strategic alignment
Organizations need to improve strategic alignment to maximize business value. Rapidly changing business environments require innovation and agility.

Taking an Agile approach to all areas of business ensures there is sufficient alignment with organization-wide objectives.

7. Employee morale
The very nature of the Agile approach is designed to keep the team excited about the challenges ahead and becomes instrumental in establishing greater coordination between team members, which ultimately boosts business performance.

8. Risk reduction
The Agile approach helps to reduce risk.

Sprints include Agile based methodologies and techniques such as sprint reviews and sprint retrospectives. These techniques provide regular feedback to prevent deviations between the expected and the completed deliverables and allow for faster lesson identification and learning.

9. Technical skills
The Agile approach, when adopted and implemented correctly, allows team members to invest professionally and develop quality work rather than just completing the tasks.

When an organization adopts Agile techniques with the objective of delivering a top quality product or service, it also serves to hone sound technical skills.

10. Project visibility
Visibility is essential to allow people and teams to adapt quickly to changes. In the absence of project visibility, it is difficult to track and measure productivity improvements. Teams and leaders of an organization both need to know where they are focusing.

In short, customer value can only be achieved by increasing team and leadership visibility by establishing and implementing an Agile approach.
