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.

Rob Vance: (Rosetta Stone)
Chris Doyle: (Serrano I.T. Ltd.) This mantra is a call to action, to fix something that is broken and I fully back it (at the minute). What we really need of course is the "right balance" between each of the lefts and rights, however that would never rally the troops, so well done guys. Lets hope that we can cope with the fallout if the "masses" take the mantra too seriously!

Roy Mente: (vtsPN) I absolutely agree to this manifesto, let's fight for it, we are not there yet! Best solutions appear at places where the technology truely meets the business, needs and users. This way of development is a good start! To many attention is still going to "stuff" that doesn't add anything to the quality of the solutions.
Andre Carstens: (MWEB) Should have signed this a long time ago. After working in a Scrum team for the last six months I have to agree that Agile Development produces results!
