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.

Rolf Kulemann: Maybe this alliance is able to influence the use of modern software development techniques like eXtreme programming based on testing, refactoring, pairprogramming and frequently integration (etc.) in a way, that people are not only talking about those techniques, but also use them in real life projects.

Thomas Moedl: (DialogData) This manifesto sounds like the very best I experienced within 15 years of software implementation, design, teaching and applying methodologies. Unfortunately, in nowadays working environment, simplicity frequently tends to slip away somewhere in between defining processes and responsibilities. Thank you so much for this statement.

Avinash Bhambhani: (Odyssey Ways) A large software project can be planned in details from the inception and documented, before the actual project starts, is a perfect misconception - if as a software company our interest is to provide solutions that strategically benefit the client organization and provide a true return on investment into software. I sincerely support the Agile Manifesto and recognize the fact that our intentions as software vendors have to be to partner with clients and provide continual solutions that change the way they do business today and realize the strategic benefits of technology to suit to their specific culture, competencies and agile environment.
mohammed qattan: to tell the truth i didnt use any agile methodology but i think that we suffered enough from RUP and i found many solutions for the problems we had with the last project i would like to thank you all for your thoughts and ideas and efforts in making the software development a real thing and not a myth
Andrew Medvedev: (Software Development)
Damiano Altomare: When I as university student, studied Software Engineering, I felt something didnt't work; When I was on job, working on real projects, many Software Engineering best prcatices simply didn't apply, moreover I recognized most of my successes were due to to the skills acquired on the programming field, and that programming was a central activity in the software development.
