Key Differences

The Waterfall is a Liner Sequential Life Cycle Model. In contrast, Agile is a continuous iteration of development and testing in the software development process.

Agile methodology is known for its flexibility, whereas Waterfall is a structured software development methodology.

Agile performs testing concurrently with software development, whereas, in Waterfall, methodology testing comes after the “Implementation” phase.

Agile allows changes in project development requirements, whereas Waterfall has no scope of changing the conditions once the project development starts.
