Jeffrey Dake Senior Director of TechnologyCommented:
To sum it up agile is based on an interactive approach to development. In waterfall you make large requirements and pass your project from on department to another. Agile is about doing small iterations with all departments working closely together to build the concepts of the project, build it and test it all together in a short quick timeframe. This allows you to release small bits of functionality and learn from it without spending a lot of development into a fully specified project.

Hope this helps.
