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.

Delfi Ramirez: (Segonquart Studio)
Mike Sampson: (
David Hazel: (Enchaine Informatic) I thoroughly support the Agile Manifesto. It is an approach that I have been taking to software development during most of my 23-year career as a developer. Enchaine Informatic (my own company) also prefers this approach, where customers are willing to work like that.
Garyl Hester: (
Dr Vincenzo Trignano: (Kingston University London)
Fred Leise: (Intuitect)
Jan Lewis: (VR Software, Inc.)
Martin Kropp: (Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz)
Om Sonie.
Jamie Dinkelacker: (The Sunarcher Organization) Agile software development returns humanity to the humans engaged in software creation. Coupled with pattern languages, an effective means fo software production is now ascending.
David Pallmann: (Neudesic) It's about time the important things in software development were distinguished from the less important.
Shane Rodbourn.
Mir Faheem: (University of Strathcyde) I have used Rapid Application Development methodologies in leading my IT projects. However, after having a look at the Agile Manifesto, I am convinced that in essence I have been following the Agile way! Being Agile is the way forward for delivering successful projects. Projects that work for the customer!
Navneet Kumar: (AdventNet Inc) I think this method is developer friendly. It does not sees developer as a machine in a software factory but a designer who wants to create great software. I think software development is a creative work and the process model takes that creativity away. However I do not know how well this method will scale for large projects. We work in small teams so this method suits us.
Dino Cacciola: (The 9thXchange Inc.) Agility is key key key to even coming close to maximizing and matching internet speed.
George Bozocea: I use it and I love it
Vitaly Dubravin: (GRT Corporation) Simple but very efficient way of building a quality product that meets CURRENT customer needs and keeping friendly environment within the delivery team
Matthew Fidler.
Stein Kåre Skytteren: I believe!!
Peter Anderson: (ACD Systems) Scrum on!
Kar Wai Wong: (Information Managers, Inc.)
J. Asante-van Laarhoven: (CSC) i have always wanted to expose this way of working, so now that it is here i would love to simply join! Agile is "a way of work", and not just a set of principles that is to be followed. Most people already apply Agile to the work they do, but most of the time they are not aware of it. I believe any one can adapt to this way of working to deliver better quality products much faster! That is the nice thing about Agile, lets bring the awareness to those that are not aware and stimulate those that are aware to better it!
Eden Crane: Anyone who is successful at the 'items on the left' is more then capable of being successful with the 'items on the right'.
Naum Kopman: (N. Kopman & Son, Inc.)
David B. Hon: (Univ. of Florida Astronomy) Keep up the good work. Fight the Good Fight. Cheers, --davidh
Thijs Cadier: (80beans)
Sadegh Alavi: (iLedge) I am a chief software/application architect in a software company and we are developing and packaging a ERP solution based on .NET technology and I'm so eager to apply Agile methods to our development environment because Agile development focuses on the individuals - Customers and Developers.
Laura Fillmore: (Open Book Systems) Having practiced traditional publishing since 1976, I can say that Agile Methodology finally introduces a fresh wind of change to an industry struggling from its very rapid, and largely involuntary, online metamorphosis. We move from a product-based industry to one that is process- and information-centric and need to understand how people read, learn from, apply, share, and store ideas online, and then build a system of floating values to reward participants in the new meritocracy of mind. Interdisciplinary Agile Methodology offers us a welcome framework.
Brian Aherne: (CombinedMedia) Just what I have been waiting for, for a long, long time...
maya: (Polycom Israel)
Abhishek Sharma: (Impetus Technologies)
Clenio F. Salviano.
Gunnar Heldebro.
Leif Olofsson: (FMC FoodTech)
Jeff Brady: (Brady Consulting,Inc) I think we need to emphasize that, although software development is a discipline, the result of which is a logical entity, there is a strong element of art and intuition that must be present for success. Software development is, after all, not vastly different from building construction or music composition or any other creative process, and in each of these activities the wise practitioner learns to embrace the random occurrence of events that transpire to bring a creation to reality. The process is ultimately guided by the force of experience and creative passion that emanates from the team and its leaders.
Angelo Lanuza: ( I concur with agile's principle, I've been doing that for years...
Adrian F. Ruffinatti: (
John Skinner: (Configuresoft, Inc)
Victor Tso.
Naresh Jain: (ThoughtWorks Inc)
Alex Pinsker: ( For software development with "a human face".
Aaron Schaap: (Elevator Up) We support and are extremely interested in the future and further understanding on agile development.
Oguz Bayrakdar: ( Agile is the best way of making work for now. What will be next ? Time will show it ...
Shekhar Yadav: I have worked in startups and I see the difference in innovation and engineering clearly being how agile the process and team is. I vouch for the agile manifesto for all teams and all companies - however big or small. Going back to the basics, software is for customers and if we can not fit their requirements we are fooling ourselves. Don't deny change - accept change in any phase of your release. Don't make customers accomdate your release cycles, change your release cycles to accomodate early and frequent changes in requriements.
Raman Agrawalla: (TCS)
AHMET ARTU YILDIRIM: Hi. As a software developer, i agree with you. we should spread the mentality of agile development all over the world. And as a result... more success in the projects we gain.
Paul Schapira: (Vertigo Software)
Joshua Messer: (Iron Mantis Studios)
Paolo Arvati: (CSC)
Peter Flynn: (White Wall Web) Let's keeping finding better ways to build software that works.
