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.

Brian Steed: Craig Larman's Agile & Iterative Development is the first time I have seen in words what works.

Abhishek Sharma: (TCS) True Agile development spirits must be promulgated, as the shammers are stigmatizing Agile as synonym for no process.

Senthilkumar Ravindran: (Polaris Software Labs) Reducing waste and reaching the best possible value in the shortest span of time incorporating constant feedback from those who are going to use the system/service to achieve the business goal is the common sense approach. Agile takes us from Complexity to Simplicity. I am proud to be signing this.

José Tiburcio Ribeiro Netto: (Mineiro - Rails Development)
Andy Chadwick: At last, a just get on with it and make it happen mantra. So many software projects overrun the deadline, get pulled and have nothing to show, at least with Agile methods you should have worked out what gives the best value to the customer first, this should quickly start to payback the development costs and ease project managers and key stake holders concerns. Once running, further possibilites, previously unforseen, enhancements may become realised, and take priority for delivering quick wins, maximising the usefulnes of the development effort early on. The user will learn to use the application because of the direct involvement with dev team. And because the process is iterative, it builds on knowledge gained through its use as features are requested. The docuemntation begins with how to get started and evolves as the features are written, with most existing users never reading it anyway. A daily build, will help to build camaradery amongst the individual team members to help each other complete their daily work targets. Altogether a winning combination for the customer, the managers, the devs, the testers, and the accountants.
Tim Rosenblatt: (Cloudspace) Yes.
ASSOULINE: (Sopra Group)
David Beaumier: (Elapse Technologies) I firmly believe the values and principles can help development teams to realize their full potential. / Je crois fermement que les valeurs et principes du manifeste peuvent aider les équipes de développement à réaliser leur plein potentiel
Jim Pellouchoud.
Eric Brachhausen: As a facilitator of cross-sector collaborations, I think the manifesto is a good model for many types of collaboration, whether based on software as the outcome or some other product serving the common good. Reduced even further, one could say agile development is an experiential versus a structural approach.
