Independent Signatories of
The Manifesto for Agile Software Development

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Jeff Winchell: (http://Winchell.org) My Inner Cartman says the manifesto should be retitled Getting to Duh: Realizing Humans Make Technology (not the other way around). Thank you to all of you making software soft and more wearable.
Uckun Emel: Thanks to the founders of human-oriented development.
FAYEN Daniel: (DFA) To be agile is to evolve with the changing world and, more important, to keep focus with the customer true needs. This no-nonsense approach should be spread over the community: both the (software) supplier and the user(the customer) should understand this approach is their best interest. Experienced in harmonising Agile principles with CMMI and PMI.

Fully believe|support this method that employs practical|common-sense approach to development!!! Cheers! Anthony.tx@gmail.com ±
Karl Wilson: (Creative Technologists) I support the Agile Manifesto, because it makes sense. After two weeks into my study of agile methods, I am overwhelmed with the new directions and insight the book Agile Documentation, by Andreas Ruping is giving me. I am at the start of my business venture and am now at the documentation of the business and the last year’s hard work stage. The book and sequential learning’s have given my new hope in understanding what lays ahead of me, and the tools to manage and combat any further problems. For someone who suffers from dyslexia, but has no choose but to do the essential documentation themselves, I am amazed how easy my task has now become, and I do not say this lightly. Straight forward thinking equals straight forward solutions. Heaven. Agile thinking has removed many previous mental blocks, which other teachings have failed to do with dyslexics. Many thanks, Karl This book and method is worth every penny you could put in.
Theron James: (Common Technologies, Inc) We at Common Technologies are true believes in constantly and persistently finding better ways to create software and systems. Agile Development is one of those new ways. We are proud to use and support such a awesome method.

Alexander Gribanov: (IT-Studio) It's cool to deliver to customers what they really need in a way that really suits end-users and business
Özgür Yoðurtçu: (VeriPark) My favourite; "Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.".
Peter Misak: (Comarch s.r.o)
Marcelo Lúcio da Silva: (Pgcon Consulting, BRAZIL) Down with the Torpid Methods!!

Dion Hinchcliffe: (Sphere of Influence) I am pleased to support the agile manifesto. Developing great software is one of the important ways that civilization moves forward. Solving the problems that prevent us from delivering great software is critical for our industry to move forward.
Jenny Smith.
Henning Wolf: (it-agile GmbH)
David Romine: (AgileThought)
Shaoshuai Shi: (School of Software,Tsinghua University, Peking, China) I am an agile software developer.
Dave Draggon: (Intel)
Christopher J Taylor: (Infogenic Systems)
Rich Greene: (InSource)
Bernard Fraenkel: Agile works
Richard: (Craesol) Breath of fresh air as I see failing project managers dissapear into the abyss under a sea of paperwork. Given the levels of business change that we are dealing with today, the Agile is increasingly relevant, and potentially moves us towards a more transparent working environment.
Javier Fernández Mejuto: (Telefónica I+D) Software development must change. The traditional methodologies don't work in the real world, where they have proved to be inefficient in terms of time and money. Now we have an alternative at our hand.
Fernando Rincon: (Open Systems Development - OSD) Our experience has taught us to believe not blindly in fantasy methodologies, considering them stiff, bureaucratic and little effective, but more well doing with open mind to find the real requests and the pragmatic solution.
Ryan Peterson: (Creek Systems) My organizatoin has been implementing Agile development practices within large organizations for years. The results prove the methods. I always ask my clients how do they measure success. If the answer is working production software that produces measurable business cost savings, then the Agile processes are for you. If the answer is the thickness of the documentation folder, then stick to a big "M" methodology. My organization has the proof to backup the claims, and we've proved it in the real world for numerous clients. The software is produced on target, but more importantly the group dynamics and culture produced are staggering. I've never seen a more tight nit, cohesive development team then the agile team.
Sudev Mukherjee: (Sapient Inc) Agile methodology is for the developers, of the developers and by the developers. It is great to know that industry recognizing the value of having working software over rims of paper. I wish more and more people recon the value of it and the whole industry get benefited from this approach of software development. Thank you all.
Francisco Uribe: (Universidad de Chile)
Dr. Ernest Wallmueller: (Qualität & Informatik, Switzeland) People make processes. People are the key factor. Who communicates, wins.
Emilio: I totally agree on the principles behind the Manifesto. Only one doubt about documentation: also working software needs essential documentation.
Igor Kavilovich: (BiD.com.ua Corp.) We support The Manifesto for Agile Software Development.
Pollyanna Pixton: (Evolutionary Systems)
Steven Shaw: (http://home.iprimus.com.au/steven_shaw/)
John McKay: (McKay Software Services Ltd) I am in favour of precise communication between people and moving away from techical jargon and buzzwords. I also support incremenetal development. AGILE seems to help me to work along these lines
Graham Mingst: (JPMC Chase)
Niranjan Sarade: Very good motive
