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.

David Giglio: (Rise Up)
Luciano Kalisewski.
Michael M Huang: (NSCA)
Timothy Karoli: It works!!!
Jeff Foster: (Dynamic Aspects)
William Flow: Process is not just my business but every coder or QA'er worth his/her salt
Tarang Patel: When I first read about Agile methodology, for me it simply stated some of the things I'd found worked best for me. I've been fortunate to have worked intimately with few customers who value individuals and working software. Really when collaboration trumps adversarial interactions every one wins in time. An analog of Agile is that in nature one observes things seemed to be designed, contructed and contracted if you will with simplicity/utility in mind - no one sat down to write the documents first. This is the beauty of the Agile manifesto.
Piotr Muszynski: ( It's the second year since I joined an agile team and I didn't look back. Work is efficient and fun. Your ideas are so natural, I feel I knew the pieces instinctively before.
Rijk Ravestein: (Datraverse B.V.)
Rudolf-Paul Poels: supporting wholly and fully
mark jones.
mahmoud helal: (Intracom)
Enrique Pérez Gil: ( It is my hope to reach the level of power to be able to try to apply the rules we agree there where I work. Essentially I do believe it can be done, althought I guess a lot has to be done yet, looks a bit like changing from Windows to Linux...
ONORA, Tetsuro.
Troy Zimmerman: (UBS (O'Connor))
DaShaun Carter: (OpenJack LLC)
Rob Rowe: (Fusion Labs)
Michael Spayd: (Cogility Consulting Solutions, LLC) Geez, I guess I'm slow. Who knew you could still sign at this late date :) ??
Brian Turner: (BlackBox Insurance Consultants) The Agile Manifesto is quite simply the easiest most efficent methodology I have used
Michael John Mierzykowski: (MJ Mierzykowski & Company, Incorporated) Primarily interested in SQA Related Topics as it applies to Agile Methods.
Michele Smith: (Metagy Ltd.) We have used DSDM since 1996. We have lived and breathed the Agile Principles again and again (even before we knew they were the Agile Principles!) The benefits have been enormous: strong collaborative teams, satisfied customers and software that meets the business need and actually gets used. The Agile manifesto makes some deceptively simple statements that are in action remarkably powerful practices.
Tomasz Gajewski: That's why I enjoy my programming again!
Richard Beauchamp.
Alejandro Bedini.
Umesha Balasubramaniam.
Naim Imami.
Deirdre Saoirse Moen: ( As a long-time software developer, I've always wanted to see my software actually used. Which meant that I've always wanted to accommodate the needs of the client I was building the system for, even if their management didn't really understand why their workflow wasn't working. Finally, after years of "we're following the plan" thinking, I'm glad to hear that there's other people out there who share the values I have long held -- but not articulated.
Palmer²: Electronics Communications Consultant The way things should be done.

Daniel J. Power: (
Giuliano Jordão: (G-Zero Tecnologia)
Macneil Fernandes: (Caritor India) I support the agile alliance manifesto because it supports working iteratively on a project and addressing defects on different granularities. It thus gives benifits to both the customer as well as the developer.
Sunil Kumar: I am a developer working for a well-known MNC. I have never practiced agile approach to development, though have done some test-driven development. My main objective is to improve myself to deliver results using aglie approaches.

Bahman Koohestani: The most valuable asset in any team is its ability to respond to change quickly.
