Waterfall Model

Definition 

(noun) A sequential development process, in which development flows steadily downwards, like a waterfall, through the phases of initiation, analysis, design, build, test and maintenance. To follow the waterfall model, you move from one phase to the next sequentially, with no overlapping or iterative steps.

Example

“Work together and our waterfall model will guide us from one objective to the next.”

Alternate definition: When the team rallies together the completion of each task flows downstream quickly.
