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.

Curtis Lee: The only thing that is constant is change! I Support the Agile Manifesto!
William Bello: (HESET) For ages we have been developing support for those who wanted to be more efficient in their everyday work. Sometimes we called this support application, this days service. But somehow we had easy way to lost from sight why we are doing this. And who asked for it. L'art pour l'art - was very often the result of our design and codding effort. At least I agree we had to spread the word and streamline to achieving the four right listed values.
anfer: (Asset Technology)

Denisse Vega: (Dextra Technologies) I agree with this manifesto. And I believe that it will fit a lot with the new way of working in/with technologies. As technology evolves, new ways to guide our work will rise and now is time for something more Agile.

Alexander Byndyu: (Fuse8)
Rajesh C Parmar: Since 1995, I've worked in a manner that would now be described as Agile. In the main, I was part of small, highly motivated teams OUTSIDE of traditional IT departments. Invariably, these teams were set up by businesses because of the failure of IT departments to deliver solutions in a timely fashion. Back then, projects produced by these teams were seen as 'tactical' - but it was surprising how these tactical systems became the backbone of major business processes. So clearly, the systems worked to everyones satisfaction. Its interesting that now this mode of working has been attributed with a palatable title - to almost differentiate it from being likened to nothing more than 'hacking' (a common criticism). I think the challenge will be for IT departments to understand that change is the norm and producing systems that respond to change as the business evolves is a fundamental goal. After all, the customer should be able to change their mind!

Oddny Sigurdardottir: (Acando) I have worked as a project manager for several years and managed to deliver some complex projects on time and budget and the feeling has been great but a well functioning Scrum team beats it all.

Martin Vahi: I like code that speaks for itself and I think that the code must serve humans --- or robots, who like humans. :)
Mosin Hasan: (BVM) I support the Agile manifesto because the most important principle it has "CUSTOMER SATISFACTION" means growth for our organization
Theo van Stratum: (Sage UK Limited)
Marc Pettifer: (minus19.com) I agree wholehartedly. It's a great idea and one that deserves support and input.
Mark Mahoney: (Seacure(euro)ltd) I support this because it is considering the element of human interaction throughout the lifecycle. Communication is all, without it you deliver what you think the customer may want as opposed to what they actually need.
