Traditional descriptive process models with a rigid and enforced flow of events are less likely to embrace change than empirical adaptive approaches. Agile is adaptive and embraces innovation. In addition to generating brilliant ideas for new products and services, technology itself is often the motivator for the business. For example, think about the use of GPS devices as a tracking mechanism for a parcel courier or scanners that read electrical meters. My local energy company recently started reading its meters by driving by the house.
Traditionally managed projects come in many different favors, but they have this one problem in common; late changes are extremely difficult to digest. The degree of difficulty depends, of course, on the severity of the introduced change. I have even seen projects fail entirely because of one changed requirement. That's why, for humorous reasons, I often add a new phase after the deployment phase that I call the finger-pointing phase. Please remember that the traditional model was developed in the 1960s, when mainframe computers dominated the IT landscape.
