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.

Hans Graf: (HIS Consultants) This is the most important initiative in the ara of software development ever.
Victor Shalnyev: (NIX Solutions Ltd.) From my practice I see now that agility is the best concept for doing anything and not only for software development. It's time now to migrate from heavy and clumsy archaic methodologies to lightweight and agile ones because we are people which help people to do their business as people.
Lasse Koskela: (Accenture) I just realized that I had never signed this manifesto myself. I definitely subscribe to the values of the agile manifesto.
Daniel Quirino Oliveira: (USP)
Harish Raghavendra: (http://harishr.bounceme.net) Agile programming is a breath of fresh air to the slow and procedure driven programming for completion of projects. I definitely want to follow and adopt it to my style.
Julias Shaw: (ThoughtWorks)
Bill Knapp: (Technology Servants)
Praveen Reddy1.
Jawwad Farooqi: (Techno Beavers Limited) These 12 "commandments" speak for themselves. I don't see any two ways about it.
Kai Virkki: (Efecte) The agile manifesto has really put into words the thoughts about software development I've had in my mind for a long time. It's great to see that agile methods are gaining popularity also in Europe these days!
Jay Jackson: (makeitcomplete.com) To live and die by.
Scott Delcore: (SAIC)
Anil Pathak: (Penumbra pvt ltd) :-)

Pascal Rulfi: (Windsoft sa)
Shyam Jandhyala: (Sundaram Infotech Solutions)
BAKUL .
Joseph Butson: (http://www.josephbutson.com) It's an attitude! It's about people! It's about time! For too long, too much effort and money have been squandred chasing the next best thing. A more transparent, honest and democratic approach to software solutions does not yet exist. If it isn't an agile approach, don't even bother.
Amaury Pinto de Castro Monteiro Junior: (Companhia de Sistemas)
Joseph C. Fung: (http://www.josephfung.com)
Jason Chen: (National Central Univ. Taiwan) I support the agile manifesto from the bottom of my heart. As a matter of fact, I have developed an agile method of my own based on extreme programming. The method is to be taught in the freshman class here in Taiwan. Through the education, I believe that we can make a better software industry - and a better tomorrow for us all.
Marek Fiala, MAF: (LCS International a.s.) As the System Architect of LCS Noris Information System. I follow the Agile Manifesto and I fully prefer good agile practices.
Jon Egil Strand: Software professional (MSc), Oslo. Database, web-application, datamining and statistical learning.
Vance McCorkle: I've converted from waterfall to swine. Be it fad or new religious zeal, applying Agile Software development techniques along with SCRUM, has brought about resounding success to our org.
Melissa Appleby.
Nikolay Kolev: (Portellus, Inc.) The only way to bring future closer.
Luri Darmawan: (KIOSS Project) At each milestone, we enhance and refine the software based on feedback and input, stakeholders and developers -- along with the results of testing and diagnostics code. This approach results in better end products that adapt to changing specifications and meet overall expectations.
Claude Monnard: (windsoft sa) After reading Kent Beck's "XP explained", all I wished was to try XP... Now we tried it for some projects, that were all successful. Agile methods are a great and valuable way to develop good software !!
Vittal.
Anton Dimov.
James Johnson: (Xerox Information Management)
Ace Jones: Rock on!
fadil Boudjenane: (Algeria - France) Agile Methodologies is a step in the right direction to face the IT demands --> agility. I personally experienced two offshore projects using a methodology inspired from Agile Software Development and RUP. The both of them were a success project.
Brijesh Choubey: (Indigo Architects) I support the Agile Manifesto as in current world where time to market is critical and had maximum influence in any project development lyfe cycle. I myself has worked on such project and i feel its one of the better methodology of software development.
Marco Paone: (Government) I think this the future of sw development processes
ILVER ANACHE PUPO: (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicada (UPC)) Itīs a right approach to focus in constructing and delivering the right software in an agile way to the customers
Andrew Gause: (WDS) Clearly, agile is the most sensible approach to efficient software production today.
Demetrius Nunes: (Interface TI Ltd) Agile is the way to deliver good software if you're smart and nimble.
Steve Henderson: (Acxiom)
Jonathan Roberts.
Jeyakrishnan Ramakumar.
Gabriel Gasparolo.
Medhat Helmy: (Protegra Technology Group) According to Plato’s Republic, everyone in the state should be responsible for decisions taken. Although everyone should participate, the ones who rule are the philosophers. And by "philosopher" Plato meant someone who is a lover and searcher for wisdom but he knows he will never reach it. That's exactly what the agile methodology tells us. Every team member is responsible for the delivery of the project; everyone should be very dynamic and continue improving the solution, the team and even the process itself. The methodology focuses on the fact that there is no absolute solution for all problems. No process is the best suite for all projects. Every project is different because of different clients, teams, technologies, domains etc. To me the word "Agile" in software is synonymous to the word "Wise" in life.
DUMOULIN Michel: (OTIS) Project Manager - France
Luciano Passuello: (Simplus Projetos e Tecnologia)
