I would say it hate to do with the preconditions, is there a spec (the 
optimistic approach..)? in that case what kind of spec you got, what 
are the requirements, are there any high risk requirements and so on.
In any case an iterative model is proven to be very flexible 
productive. Have a look at Fowlers page, lots of info.

Some pointers though:

General agile stuff:
