Traditionally Agile is compared to Waterfall. And I think that most people when do this, think of Waterfall simply as a model with long release cycles. E.g. we plan tasks for 6-12 months, implement & test them (usually simultaneously), then we release. Next year we repeat. At some point the project is done.
But according to the classical definition of Waterfall: we plan and design the whole project, then we implement, then we test, etc. It has to be sequential and the whole sequence should happen only once.
In my life I don't think I've ever seen a true Waterfall project and thus I don't want to compare Agile with it. But I've seen projects with long release cycles which clearly weren't Agile. And I think that's what we should compare Agile with.
But do we have a collective term for such projects?
