Summary:

For years, the primary methodology for delivering software projects was the "Waterfall Method". With the Waterfall method, all software requirements are gathered up front, designs are done for each requirement, and each feature is coded and tested before migrating to production. For projects that exceed one year of development and implementation, there are risks of the project being cancelled (according to the Standish Group, about 31% are cancelled before completion).
