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.

Harshad Chandre: (Cognziant Technology SOlutions)
Mads Søgaard: (
David Kempster.
Scott Kravatz: (Kravatz, Inc.)
Giuseppe Delfino: (IBM Italia spa - Sw Group IT Architect) I fully support the Agile Manifesto for three reasons: 1) because it recognizes and provides the way to battle the new challenges that software development should deal with, like a wider 'COTS' integration, provision and reuse of sw components, a shorter time to delivery 2) it promotes human relationships and collaborations 3) it is very very pragmatic
Warren Burkholder: (NAIT)
Manfred Lange: (csUnit) We spend so much time at work. Why shouldn't we have fun at work? Using an agile approach will help towards that goal!
Pavel Timoshenko: (Sumix) Why nobody said this before?
Sridhar P.V.: I am a Business Analyst who has been propagating Agile methods in my organization.
Patrick Mc Neese: (RX Data Services, LLC)
Sukumar Daniel: (Mascon Communication Technologies) As quality Manager and ISO Assessor, I am tired of being told that processes are of no value, for me the Agile Manifesto is a Way of Life leading to quality
Fred Grossman: (Pace University)
Harshal Baviskar: (Axis Software Pvt Ltd)
Guangjun Ma: I think AGILE can liberate us programmers.
Rolf Riedlinger: (IBM) I fully support the Agile manifesto This is what I'm searching for. In its 4 simple statements it gives guidance for software development with a strong focus on the reality. It does focus on the right keys by keeping in mind currrent state of the art processes. This is the future
Michael Kelly.
Sivakumar Shanmugam: I am very impressed.
Andre Lockhart: (ObjectWare) Agile methods are the distilled essence of everything that is right and FUN about software development. The more time spent delivering value to our customers, the better!
Sergey Kotov: (Enterprise Information Systems)
Aseem Anand.
liwei: (CDTT,P.R.China) As a 10-year C programmer,I firmly believe that Agile is the way to future and is the only way.
Kasey Kim: (Samsung Electronics Co.) I have been a software engineer and software project manager for the last 17 years. Ever since I got to know this Agile Method in 2001, I became the enthusiastic supporter of it. I was tired of the heavy process of doing never-accurate planning and never-consulted documentation. I believe this is the real process that fits to the human nature and which can meet the need for this fast changing environment.
Anders Stolpe: (Independent) I couldn't agree more with the thoughts behind agilemanifesto. It seems to me as if there are two ways to go at this point in time, one is the process-formalized way and the other is people-centric. Its going to be interesting to see which model will prevail, in lets say 5-10 years time. I know where my money is! Keep up the good work! /Anders
Ian E. Savage, CSQE: (only as needed) As a 24-year veteran of software development and quality assurance, I've seen many approaches; met and learned from many significant contributors to the software industry; and consider myself a student - constantly learning. IMHO: The light practices hold considerable potential. I predict they will be the centerpiece in the continuing maturation of our industry over the coming 10-15 years. Thank you all for your bold, new ideas. I urge you to continue pushing the envelope. IES, CSQE
Marcelo Costa de Oliveira: (TakeNET - CURUPIRA S/A) I Support the Agile Manifesto! But I also value processes and tools, comprehensive documentation, contract negotiation and following a plan. ;-) In fact, I think that we should equally value both "the items on the right and the items on the left". And my experience is showing that it is possible!
Nauman Malik: (Softech Systems (Pvt) Ltd.) Full Support to agile manifesto.
Roberto Aguiar Lima: (Roma Informática)
Matthew Uhre.
chinmay kolachalam.
Raja Sankar.
Pallav: (ISakti Technologies Pvt Ltd) I agree agile methodology and follows this methodology in my project and found it to be more productive and easily managable.
Nigel Runnels-Moss: (1337 Collective) 1337 fully endorses Agile Methods as the leading-edge meme in software development, and uses Agile Methods as the de facto standard for all its projects. Further: 1337 applies Dispersed Agile as one its main business processes and believes this to be the 'kissaki' or 'sharpest part of the edge' for Agile Development.
Anto Jeromes: (DigitaThink Inc.,) I would like to add full support to the agile technology wherein the development of the software which is done stage by stage, is beneficial and advantageous in terms of testing.Also this methodology helps to reduce the software delivery time and the minimised number of bugs and it also offers a positive impact on ROI.
Akkala Maheswara Prasad: (Wipro Technologies)
Abrachan Pudussery: (Procize) A totally different perspective to look at software development as a whole. A more natural way of developing software.
Shivaji Chavan: (GE Consumer Products,Bangalore India)
Ramana Polavarapu: (SAP Labs, LLC.)
John Buccola: (Alliance Imaging, Inc.)
Michael R. Brazee.

Hany Kattow: (Scania Part Logistics AB)
Charles Scuilla: (Secure Elements, Inc.)

Rob Sartin: (Omniscient Turtle) I've been applying Extreme Programming since 1999. Applying the core values of the Agile Manifesto yield a more productive and more pleasant work environment. I have found that working software makes customers much happier than a detailed plan and extensive documentation for a system that does not exist.
David Romine.
