What is the difference between it and Waterfall?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
