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.

Max Murphy: (http://www.maxmurphy.net) The agile manifesto has changed my professional life!
Jean-Marc Lagace: (m2i3) It's amazing that it took so long to go back to the basics... we claim we do software engineering altough our methods are closer to those of the master and apprentices. I read this manifesto as one of the base stones that will help our craft develop into something we will call engineering some day. Jean-Marc Lagace, m2i3.com

Kay Stanke: (Valtech GmbH)
Murali Krishna Devarakonda: (Crystal Ball Corporation) The Agile manifesto to me is akin to democracratization of the software development process. Instead of unrealistic edicts (i.e. requirements and timelines) to be followed that have been issued by the powers that be, Agile lets a process of "democratic" interaction between all concerned parties, who all have a say in it. Thus, the Agile manifesto leads to a system that has the greatest chance of achieving the best results for all stakeholders, all the while focusing on attaining the highest quality within a practical amount of time. The Agile Manifesto has my whole-hearted support - both in spirit and in deeds. -Murali Krishna Devarakonda Crystal Ball Corporation
Alison Vincent: (NDS Ltd) I have always been passionate about people and the belief that given the correct support engineers can do amazing things. The Agile Manifesto fully enables these beliefs to translate into the software development of my organisation. Early days for us in terms of implementation. But for those teams who are trying the techniques, their faces glow and their energy levels have increased !

varix patel: (Par infotech)

Jay Conne: (Jay Conne Consulting) With over 40 years in the software business, I rejoice in this Agile alternative to a history of institutionalized self-deception in software project management. It's the simultaneous humanity and productivity that is the appeal. -- Jay Conne -- Lean-Agile Coach and ScrumMaster
Marc Dostie.
Erick Dovale.
Markus Buehler: (bbv Software Services AG)
John Ladino: (PSL S.A.) We have to change the way things are doing in our industry. We need to ask respect for our work, our profession and for our time. We are here to help our society, but at the same time we need that our society help us to do an excellent job. We cannot forget our responsibility and the fact that software not only involves money, but people's time and dreams. We need to keep in mind that software is made by women and men who have a life beyond the computers.
Bas Kok: (baskok.com) I've seen too many mismanaged projects that could only be rescued by agile programming.
