Agile is known to be a process that greatly enhances an organizations’ capacity and capability in the areas of both software development and testing. Properly implemented, it provides a lot of business-critical benefits to organizations. It helps organizations successfully tackle challenges related to development costs, predictability, and scope.
Following are some statistics explaining the measures used to assess the success of Agile initiatives in organizations:

Agile also provides an environment wherein feedback and inputs can be taken at any stage, thereby improving the solution at every step.
- Quality of Software Application:
Agile testing requires chunking a larger piece of project/code into smaller and more manageable parts. This helps developers provide complete focus on smaller parts of code, which leads to improvements in the overall quality, robustness, and testing of the software application.

Agile encourages an atmosphere where it is the resultant product that gets critiqued rather than people being criticized. Both practices if ensured will definitely help increase the overall productivity of the team as a whole, and the organization will succeed in its goals.
