Why is the waterfall model valuable in the management of information technology projects?

Refer to "Arguments for the Waterfall Model" in
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterfall_model

The waterfall model is a sequential software development model (a process for the creation of software) in which development is seen as flowing steadily downwards (like a waterfall) through the phases of requirements analysis, design, implementation, testing (validation), integration, and maintenance. The origin of the term "waterfall" is often cited to be an article published in 1970 by W. W. Royce; ironically, Royce himself advocated an iterative approach to software development and did not even use the term "waterfall". Royce originally described what is now known as the waterfall model as an example of a method that he argued "is risky and invites failure".
