Agile methods are popular choice in the technology sector for the flexible product delivery. There are many papers which researched the agile challenges from different perspectives such as culture, documentation, tools, team dynamics and human behaviour but it is important to know whether the people who work in the agile environment are satisfied with the agile practices. This study is aimed to find out the satisfaction level among the agile practitioners and the possibility to overcome the challenges using agile mindset. For this, the past papers were analysed to understand the concept of the agile, then studied the challenges in technology sector. Further, two methodologies were adopted to analyse the agile environment. First, interviews were conducted to know the perspective of the scrum master on agile practices. Second, the survey was conducted to know the perspective of the developers/testers towards the agile practices. The data collected from the survey is further analysed for patterns and current agile trend among the respondents. The study further asked the opinion on the happiness and stress factor in the agile to assess the satisfaction among the practitioners. In conclusion, in this study the agile is assessed from different aspects which can affect/contribute to the satisfaction factor.
