The objective of a phased approach to development is to break your site into individual components or features that can stand on their own. You start with a needs analysis, identifying the purpose of your site. For instance, assume your site will be a combination of an e-commerce site, library site, community site, and a product brochure site. You can proceed one of two ways.
1. Collect requirements and create a design for the entire system (all parts) and then develop each part one phase at a time
RAD stands for rapid application development. With this methodology you use structured techniques, and prototyping to set your requirements, get prototypes quickly and use minimal planning. It's essentially one process that wraps several stages into one (requirements, design and possibly even the development processes.) It's close to the agile mathod but the main difference is the use of prototyping.
