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.

Rodel Quemado: The pendulum has swung from ad hoc process to heavy-weight process to more sensible, balanced center.
Leilani Morgan: (NIETECH)
Nicodemus Chan: (Nicodemus Chan) The only constant in life is change. Agile methodology frees us from the shackles of bureaucracy and concentrates on getting things done. Spread the word!
Conversión Magro: (Athelia Solutions) To control and manage software teams is just as hard and dynamic as software development. Agile provide teams a guide to collaborate in a creative and free environment, making everyone's life easier, from developers to managers. It helps people commit on their own goals. And of course this produce better software.
Pradeep.N.Kaushik: I am a professional and also a student trying to learn Agile methods and am very interested in the same. It truly overcomes some of the basic flaws in traditional waterfall driven approaches.
George Haden: As a business analyst who has designed several systems, I have yet to find a customer who would rather have perfect UML artifacts than a system that meets his needs. The key to this methodology seems to be customer-oriented thinking - success is defined as a working system at the end of the project, not just meeting the required deliverables list. As long as a customers understands that significant change can mean significant cost, and the cost metrics are agreed upon in advance, then the iterative process can succeed in delivering true value - a system that morphed into what the customer wants as he watched and guided its growth instead of an exhaustively designed system that gets implemented like a boulder rolling down hill, right over the client's needs.
Abhishek M Gupta: (Induslogic) I have been a great fan of some of you guys, you are doing a good job to find better approach for s/w development than stiff "my way or the highway" processes, keep it up.

Because of Scrum the team gels up very well and can 'self-manage' themselves.
