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.

Ed Pimentel: (AgileCO)
raji: (AMI)
Drumil.
Messaoud OUBECHOU: (OCTO Technology)
Abelmon Bastos: (Supernova) I'm applying XP in game development (looking eXtreme Game Design) with agile modeling. I can see the better results coming (project manage with risk analysis) and making the client understand what he want.
Hriadel Gabriel, Dipl. Ing.: (Slovakia)
Keith Sterling : (Keith Sterling Consulting Services Ltd)
Aric Aune: (General Mills) An Agile way of working makes so much sense, that it almost seems like common sense.
Rollo Sicoco: I support the Agile Manifesto. It defines what is important in any development effort - to manage the spirit of the deal. The project's success is accomplished by working together in promoting expectations.
Larry Boatman: (EDIGuys.net) The more I know, the boundary for what I don't know expands! Change, which is at the "heart" of knowing something, is the only constant!
Greg Greiner.
John Argo: Finally working the right direction.
Dee Bishnu: (NIKE Inc)
Silvina Danza.
Louis-Rene Poirier: (E.T.S) If only there whas an Easy Button for making a software or tailoring a process. Until then, start small and get bigger only if needed. Choosing the right agile process is a big enought starting point. Louis-Rene Poirier Soft ing graduate student.
BradWilson: (Microsoft Corporation)
Marco Vaz.
Vijay Anand.
Aaron Marten: (Microsoft Corporation)
Denny Li: (Motorola) Strongly agree with Agile Manifesto from my experience of project management.
Bharat Malik: There is a very thin line between Agile development and Slip stream development style. Agile encourages service delivery and customer centric approach whereas SlipStream style focus on working in patches overlooking basics of software development, and this lead to delay as there are more threads leading to individual dependencies and hence delaying Service delivery which marks the core of It Services in todays highly dynamic scenario. One thing i learnt over the period of time working in SDLC environ is Business Involvement and Communication which i think would be best explored by this style. So for me AGILE methodology supersedes all traditional approaches that were been used in the past.
Sudhir Hasbe: (Vakra Inc) I have worked with more than 55 customers in my career as a solutions architect. It seems that Agile model will fit very well in customer oriented projects. I have worked on so many projects where customers come just before go live and want to change the requirements. This sounds to be the solutions.
Luis Carlos Aceves G: I agree with the principes of the Agile Manifesto. We have to develop with speed and quality to build better software products
Reza Ghaem Maghami: (Eagle Datamation International) This methodology is so amazing.
Yury Kalnitsky: After all is said and done, the *only* thing that counts is the end result!

Devan Govender: (www.devan.co.za)
Hao Zhai.
Venkataraman: (Logica CMG)
John Ruberto: Customer satisfaction with our software is the primary importance. While processes, tools, documentation, and project plans should help acheive customer satisfaction, they are not ends into themselves. People who understand the customers needs working together build better software.
Ashok Singh: I agree to every word of it.
Benjamin Smith: Wow. I don't think I could have said better what you espouse. I've been working towards this for years, spending effort and time to make the difficult easy and the impossible, possible - but you hit the nail on the head! I support, and do everything I can to write, agile software!

Dan Wilkinson: (Excella Consulting) I am interested in using the best techniques for project management and software development.
Phil Bennett: (Mid-World-IT Ltd)
Shahzad Bhatti: (PlexObject Solutions, Inc.) Agile development is only rational response to all software projects that are late, over-budget or simply does not meeting customer requirements.
Mary Lang: (Comadrona Communications, Inc.) communicate || collaborate || innovate || execute || evolve
David Ballantyne: (datanet design ltd) This is a natural extention from KISS
Emmaxu: I have some experiences on XD (Extreme Delivery), one of Agile methodology. And I love it very much! I want to become one member of agile alliance. Can I?
Irwan: (PT. GMN) I really appreciate this agile concept and practice
Steven B. Levy: (Microsoft Corporation) Insanity, Einstein said, is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Applied appropriately, agile software development may help forestall insanity.
Danie Roux: Agile Software Development is putting the trust back into the software industry. With trust, comes honesty. With honesty comes open channels of communication. Once you get there, you have a synergy where everyone wins.
Jeff Nadler: (Silver Ridge Consulting Group)
