Why Does Agile Eliminate Technical Risks Faster?

Agile project management focuses on breaking projects down into smaller chunks, or sprints, with each one resulting in a working version of the final project deliverable. On average, your project team should be producing, testing, approving, and releasing a functional product every one to four weeks. 

Agile eliminates technical risks faster because your team is adding a few features, requirements, or functions at a time and continually testing. They can find issues sooner and easily identify what is causing the problem. If the entire product is built at once and only tested at the end of the project, it can be much more costly and time-consuming to identify and fix a technical issue. 

By planning and executing in sprints, Agile projects are better able to adapt to technological changes. If the technology becomes obsolete mid-way through the project timeline, an Agile project can incorporate changes quickly and cost-efficiently.
