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.

Jeff Heinen: (Qpass) We've been practicing agile for a little over a year and a half. I'll never go back.
Navin Sinha: (ReInvent Software Solutions) The Agile Methodology is a great step in turning a dead body of knowledge, process and tools into an active, alive interaction between individuals, aimed at causing the fullest expression of every individual's potential. I appreciate the efforts of The Agile Manifesto whole-heartedly.

Nathan Moon: (footnote) I agree!
Mohsin Nadeem: (Compuware Corporation) I totally support this form of software development and have been apply same kind of development practices for many years. It produces better products, without large overhead of tons of documentation which really, no one cares about.
Thomas Anderson: (Custom Business Solutions) Using agile techiques has really helped push our company into doing things more for the customer rather then the contracts. With earlier customer interaction, the software has met thier expectations much faster then plan, develop, release, adjust.
ViniciusAC: (UFS) Oi!
Raymond Kroeker: I support an Agile approach because it rewards the people working on the project. It provides a framework that values people; allowing you to reach farther.
David A. Koontz: (http://david.koontz.name) I've worked in many organizations in my twenty years in IT, some really good, some bad. One commonality of the good organizations was their ability to promote an organizational model based on people. A core belief that people are the developers and business users of software; that collaboration to solve problems within the domain was the ultimate goal of software development. I've looked for a software development process that stems from this belief system - Agile is that process!
Prakash SAMBANDAM: (Silicomp) I agree with the policy of interactions withing the team, among the users, business and technical people. Need more real life stories to float with tough situations taking into account the human behaviour in such a situation. Appreciate the effort you guys are doing.
Doug Mackey: Agile development sounds like the key to project delivery in an environment of continuous strategic and process change. Much better than the traditional project paradigm of building to static business requirements developed early in the project life cycle which assumes that a project can be built and will exist in an environment which doesn't change through the life cycle.
