However, agile project is faced with various challenges during its implementation that
leads to failure to deliver the intended solution. The success of the project can not only be
measured by its completion in terms of quality, costs, and time taken, but also through impacts
and outcomes. Agile projects face a set of problems and challenges that result from application
of different approach towards its management. Firstly, there is normally a resistance to change.
People do not prefer change in the organization unless an understandable reason is explained to
them. Resistance also comes from employees who fear the new ways of working in the
organization. The objections to change in the organization therefore becomes a reason for
wastage of time and low productivity of employees. Agile introduction to new ways of working

long run, a better quality and performance is experienced during preliminary phases of bringing
