Ensure the end product is of high quality.
Instead of planning for the whole project, it breaks down the development process in small increments completed in iterations, or short time frames. Each iteration includes all SDLC phases such that a working product is delivered at the end.
When applied to software development, specialized tasks completed in one phase need to be reviewed and verified before moving to the next phase. It is a linear and sequential approach, where phases flow downward (waterfalls) to the next.
Centers on organizational change that enhances collaboration between the departments responsible for different segments of the development life cycle, such as development, quality assurance, and operations.
