Pros

Faster Deployment of Solutions
Because there is a continuous collaboration between stakeholders and teams, the focus on the essentials speed up the delivery process.

Gives Every Team Member a Purpose
People own and are expected to deliver on their responsibilities.

Keeps the End Goal in Mind at Every Level
With the end-goal in mind, teams stay focused and unite in their efforts

Promotes Flexibility in Order to Adapt
Close team and customer contact prompts acceptance of change, and frequent deliverables.

Faster Detection of Issues and Defects
Scrum methodology incorporates daily meetings, which helps to identify problems and resolving them in time.
 

Cons

Can Act As a Band-Aid to Bigger Problems
Agile has been the go to cure-method for larger issues that most of the time organizations are not able to deal with because they don’t have a neutral party to facilitate their corporate patterns, practices, policies and culture.

Can Create a Micro-Managed Environment
Practiced incorrectly, a project manager may not want to give up control and neutralize any real decision making from the team.

Not Everyone Is On Board
Although project teams may be ready for agile development, the rest of the company may not always be easily absorbed within larger more traditional organizations where there are significant amounts of rigidity or flexibility within processes, policies, or teams.

Push for Higher Performance
The push for a higher performance is even more relentless than in traditional, procedural organizations that have rigid processes or operating methods.

Not Well-Suited for Every Project
Agile may not work as intended if a customer is not clear on goals, the project manager or team is inexperienced, or if they do not function well under significant pressure.
