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.

Alastair Calderwood: The satisfaction of using Agile, to me as a developer, is to witness the enthusiasm of end-users in contributing to projects. Software engineers are no longer distrusted, as is sadly still the case with some projects, where rigid requirements are set in cement before development has even begun. Agile is also one of the keys to the success of open source, where software is already widely used before its official release; positive criticism and suggestions for new features lead to a cycle of continual improvement.
