1. INCREASED COLLABORATION
2. FAST FEEDBACK AND FIXES
3. SAVING MONEY
5. BETTER PRODUCT QUALITY

1. INCREASED COLLABORATION
In an Agile delivery environment, cross-organizational teams share one purpose and vision, leading to better performance, where each team member is a core element in project development. Frequent scrum meetings unite the team to quickly and efficiently discuss and resolve issues that have come up during development.

Agile is also an effective way to coordinate distributed teams. Collaboration is often achieved by using communication platforms like Slack or Microsoft Teams, cloud collaboration tools like Google Drive or Sharepoint, video conferencing platforms, or any of the other project management and communication tools.

2. FAST FEEDBACK AND FIXES
Another benefit of increased collaboration is fast, iterative feedback. In an Agile environment, team members are encouraged to share what is going well, what is not working, and best practices along the way. As development progress can be seen by everyone every day and as every issue is discussed during daily stand-up meetings, it becomes easier to identify imperfections and bugs early on.

3. SAVING MONEY
Due to quick, fixed time frames in Agile delivery it is easier to stick to the budget while still allowing for changes in requirements. Finding and fixing errors quickly before production avoids unnecessary rewriting of code, saving time and development costs.

4. SAVING TIME:
In addition to saving money, Agile processes also save time. Traditional development methodologies, like Waterfall, tend to spend a large amount of time on documentation that is often not properly used, if used at all. Agile methodology avoids massive, wasted documentation efforts at the beginning of the project. The working code is the key indicator of progress, so the requirements and documents are gathered throughout development, with more focus on the working functionality of the product itself, rather than writing large amounts of documentation.

5. BETTER PRODUCT QUALITY
Typically, the quality of the final product is higher when produced in an Agile environment due to the fact that testing is integrated into every stage of the development lifecycle. Systematic examination of all errors accelerates the making of necessary modifications over time and thus improving the final quality of the product. Additionally, new features can be constantly added during development, making the solution being developed customizable and high performing.
