Agile method:1)It's highest priority is to satisfy customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
2)changing requirements,sometimes late in development.
3)Delivery of working software frequently,shorter time duration.
4)Business people and developers work throughout the project.
5)Build projects considering few trusted people,by giving support and help in any manner needed for the software to become available.

In Agile methodology we are repeating the cycle of develop and test.We started from FRD to do coding and then testing,small builds are coded and tested again if any new modifications are needed it can be done or any changes can be made to the build and then it is tested again means development process follows all the phases of SDLC only coding and testing phase gets repeated until we got our final build.This is agail.

In waterfall, we are proceeding step by step through the SDLC when we completed one phase then we can enter to another,we can not go back first complete coding then only can start testing,changes can't be made whenever you want it , used for small projects,need to have strong experience,now a days it is not in demand.

Agile prompts cross functional team members.

In agile there are some many frame works are available in market. one of the most useful and effective frame work is SCRUM framework. Scrum deliver a early software and early feedback so we can reduce the cost of the project.

Agile methodology is called agile model. It is a big project divided into modules every module further divided into sprint. Each sprint is scheduled for a maximum 15 days. Waterfall model is nothing but sequential model. It handles small projects. We cannot go back to make changes. It is time consuming model
