Adaptive Life Cycle = Iterative + incremental

Incremental = Deliver in increments and whatever is delivered is end to end to make it usable.
For example, if the end of iteration delivers search functionality, a user should be able to search.

Iterative = Continuous refinement using fast feedback.

Thus in the adaptive life cycle, the objective is to deliver something which is consumable (Incremental) and after each iteration, feedback is collected to get the next level of refinement (iterative)

For example, in an initial iteration, the search could be simple by keyword, after getting feedback, it could be enhanced by location, of course in next iteration.

If in the first iteration, both keyword and location wise are started then it could be possible that by the end of iteration everything is in progress and delivery is not usable. Select something small enough which can be developed end to end to make it usable.
Also, after getting the feedback, the existing developed functionality can also be refined if it is needed and values.

In summary, whatever is delivered it should be end to end and refinement can be done by continuous iterations.
