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.


Signatures Received: 18 Jul to 30 Jul 2006
Sanjay Kurundkar: (Textura)
Juan Bernabo: (TeamWare) I support this manifest and the agile movement as I firmly believe that we have the oportunity of delivering more value by unleashing people pontential, talents and creativity than by controlling, creating rules, defining specifics tasks, etc. Agile processes are an "Information Age" response to the limitations that "Industrial Age" inspired processes have had on software development.
Thomas Gebauer: (neuland GmbH - Büro für Informatik)
Vamsi Chemitiganti: Agile is truly the way to go to deliver world class software within schedule.
Michael Stuart.
Chuck Burgess.
Abhinaba Roy: (Xponse Technologies Limited) I prefer agile as the methodology used in our company.
Florin Baiduc: I am an open-source programmer, Linux (with it's many flavours) supporter.
Oscar Claros: Agile and Xtreme Programing leads customers and management into thinking what the REAL requirements are and what are their ACTUAL needs and thus aids me in creating better unit tests and developing clear and concise code.
Rishabh: (Sapient Corporation) Agile IS the way to go... in today's time when customers demand dizzying speed to market and business value out of their solutions to the maximum extent possible, it is undeniable that conventional methodologies have been recently failing big time in meeting these objectives. AGILE is here to stay, and fine people like us are fully committed to constantly make it happen and embed it in the IT community as a discipline and definitive direction.
Michael Leaphart.
Thomas P. Fuller: (Coherent Logic Limited)
Jawed Nazar Ali: (Global Northstar Technologies, Inc) I would like to know more about this manifesto; and also would love to support in any means to achieve this goal. I have observed that we are lacking such methodologies, which is causing lots of problems when we have to deliver large functionality in limited amount of time. Thanks, Jawed Nazar Ali
Xavier Warzee: (Valtech) Software Automation Group leader at Valtech and ScrumMaster ! I used CruiseControl, Maven, FITnesse, lightweight containers (Spring, Hivemind) on several projects in combination with agile methods such as Scrum.
Ken Leong: (LexisNexis)
Bill Busch: (Blackstone & Cullen) Good stuff...
Simon McClenahan.
Kurt Pattyn.
Prabhakar Karve: (Impetus) It makes lot of practical sense.
Brad Bollenbach: Less is less (and that's a good thing).
Douglas Carpenter: (State Of Alaska)
Jeff Luminais: Software by its very nature was designed to permit flexibility and adaptibility. Too often, the paradigm for designing large, physical entities is applied to software design. Although up front planning and thought should be given to any project, it should not be the only design constraint. Planning and design documents are important, but more so for historical perspective rather than "the bible" for a software design. A document can never represent the sum total of human thought and experience.
Gurkan Nisanci: (Software Developer) I believe in the power of Agile methods and use them heavily in every software development work I am doing.
Peter Antonov: Agile Software processes are organic.
Andres: (cromactiva)
Mark Scrimshire: (EKIVE Consulting, LLC) I have been an advocate of iterative development with early and often feature releases over the traditional big bang release.
Dirk Maes: (IBM) What other options do we have?
Paul Massey: (Absolute Software Ltd) I think the Agile Manifesto is great. I'd like to see it applied more to embedded programming.
Paul Lorett Amazona: ( sometimes we just can't avoid change... at least somehow, we respond to it in the best way we can...
Tai Truong: (qnamic - Intelligent Resource Management) It's unbelievable. We (from qnamic) thought we are the only one believing that: - (fast acting) on changes goes over contracts - working software goes over documentation - the believe in the people and the team and its dynamic interaction goes over static, defined development processes and tools - rather an evolving prototyping fulfills customer acceptance and requirements than any contract can guarantee Many people, theorists and know-it-alls doesn't agree with us, left us or rely on their old-fashioned, waterfall model approaches. BUT our customers have such a faith in us (it is sometimes even scary that they think of what and when we are capable of). AND there are other people making EXACTLY the same experience like we do! We support the Agile Manifesto!
Richard K Cheng: Deliver value, eliminate waste.
Budi Mulyono: I am interesting in this new method, and want to apply for my team.
Claudia Schmid: (Qnamic) Absolutely brilliant!
Akhil Bhandari: (Wipro technologies) I am getting into Agile and looking forward to it, its methodologies do entice me to embrace it for my further developments, as i want to get away from the RAD model, where the Customers wait till the end of the project to get a real feel of the App, in my last project, it took the users an year and a half to get the feel of the s/w and by that time, they had brand new requirements.
Dirk Pfeiffer: (Qnamic) ... How to be successful in the software business!
Rodrigo Godoy M.: (Usach) Hi. I'm working in my title process and believe that the best development methodology approach for this time is here. Thanks.
Robert Nash: (Enigma Technologies) A good philosophy, that our company will always try to follow.
Charlie Dibsdale: I have a strong belief in the principles. I have used DSDM and read a lot about XP
Anirban Bhadore.
Ricardo Venegas Noriega: (Best-UP) I have been looking for this kind of thoughts, to improve better software prcesses in an no-painful way. Good I found you
Ilia Mogilevsky: After working with the strict Waterfall model, I have come to realise that Agile methodologies are better suited for projects with quality developers. This should be outlined in course at Universities so that graduates understand the principals and can judge for themselves which methodology is better for their needs.
Liam McLennan: (Eclipse Web Solutions) Eclipse Web Solutions supports the agile manifesto and agile development generally.
Luthfy Ardiansyah.
Stephen J. Cherin: (Genesis Software)
Abhinav Behari: (Cranes Software International Limited) Hi. Agile is what almost any software development co. does. Being the first to give it a Brand is commendable.
Janet Stone: (Washington University) The ability to positively bend with change allows a team to increase their strength without fracturing and eventual failure.
Andrew McElroy: I really hope this becomes as obvious, to mainstream soon, as putting on your shoes in the morning.
Jamie Roche: (Offermatica)
Angelo Nicolay: (DBA Engenharia de Sistemas) Think Agile!
Wong, Jonathan: (Jonathan & Associates) In addition to the human factor of which is quite emphasized in the manifestonto , would like to stress that, as of viewing from the machine asset side perspective, it is equally important to have an effective SDK platform or software development facilitation platform.
