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.

An agile strategy can alleviate many of a software project's intricate an unknown complexities early in the development process. In our organization, Pervasive(Mobile and Voice Banking) software solutions were implemented using agile approaches, resulting in project delivery on time, within budget, and more importantly meeting all requirements. Finally, the Agile principles is analogus to a constitution. If an enterprise believes in it , its entire domain - business, IT, logistics and operations will flourish.

Mark Naudé: This is a welcome approach, and it's pleasing to find other like-minded persons. I work in the pharmaceutical environment, where GAMP holds sway, and am - slowly - changing minds concerning the slow, waterfall-type approach espoused by GAMP. This will be a useful addition to the arsenal.

Ghen Jiang: (Huawei (IT co. from China)) I have worked for several companies. And Huawei Technologies is the biggest and famous, but when we reached the CMM level 5, and prepared for CMMI level 4, we found the ability of the software development is not very good actually, the documents so heavy and useless, just document for document, not for the project aims. Agile, the balance of the CMM and the undefined, give us more hopeful. When I having worked around developer, tester, QA, I felt the Agile was very power for including a variety of area knowledge, such as project management,human resource management, technical and so on. Thank you, Agile!
