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.

Martin Kropp: (Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz)
Colm Smyth: ( Agile principles simply make sense, provided they are balanced with appropriate levels of design and pragmatic documentation to support the project scale, risk and technical difficulty.
Alpheus Mokgalaka: (UP) I welcome change even in social development environment,I do!
Kirill Yatsenko: (United KTB Group) People over tools, not vice versa!
José Vega: (my-xML) I subscribe to the Agile Manifesto because we have found it is a very interesting approach for developing software projects. We are currently analyzing the Agile Modeling (AM) in the framework of our activity…
Andrea Tagliabue: ( I'm both software developer and software customer. As a customer I'm fed up to spend hours to validate tons of documentation and every time you change even a comma re-validate, and when they put the software in the preprod environment re-re-validate, and if you have to change a label in the sw you have to wait months and spend ten times the time in checking documentation than the time they need to change the code (as well as money). And now has arrived also SOA to make things worse. As a sw developer I don't want to oppress a customer in this way. I comprehend them if they prefer to continue to use paper and pen.
Charles H Irwin: (Boeing)
Sherri P. Pennington: I whole-heartedly agree with the manifesto. Most of my recent projects have been fast paced and in need of this methodology. The collaborative efforts of the businss, vendor and IS from the very beginning and throughout the poject has been pleasing to all.
Ram R. Kumar: (BellSouth Telecommunications) As a software developer and a manager, I strongly believe and subscribe to Agile Manifesto.
