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: 28 Jun to 12 Jul 2007
Raymond Barlow: Having worked in both Agile and Waterfall style projects, I have seen and experienced the great results that Agile provides for both the customers and the providers. Agile works!
Murat Yalvac: I support the agile alliance manifesto for all
Tassos Noulas: (University College London) I don't know much about programming, but I know that those people are right, because Agile methodology is not only a programming methodology, but it is a natural, logical approach derived by human mind in order to solve problems that their complexity is so big, that the mind cannot cope with it without favoring simplicity and attention to detail.
William Botti: (THQ / Relic Entertainment) THQ is the 3rd largest video game publisher and we are using Agile method in a some of our studios, like Relic Entertainment. We are struggling a bit to fit Agile and Scrum Methods into console game development. Interestingly, none of the founding fathers of Agile Manifesto have a games background. I'm interested tweaking the Agile Method for game development by working together with other seasoned game industry professionals.
Sanjay Kumar Pandey: (HCL Technoligies) It has been the great need of re-accessing the software engineering process and its underlined management style.I feel that Agile methodology proves to be an strong alternatives in today's context, where all inferfaces(customer, IT, developers,business users and technology leaders) needs to be balanced out effectively and efficiently to make a successfull project.It talks more about people and their related responsibilities rather than technology.I would say people are the real players to make a success or failure.Technology is just a facilitator or secondary.
Kunal Mehra: 'Change is the only constant during a project life cycle', So its an attempt to register such changes early.And deliver the product keeping your time lines constant. Prioritising work is another key issues covered in Agile.
Sachin: (Perotsystems)
Daniel Elliott: ( Striving to be better at what we do ... The manifesto is clearly a common sense approach to software development. To Uncle Bob et al ... I thank you. Kindness, Dan
James Dorsey Flinsch: (BenchmarkQA) Now let's figure out an equivalent for 'requirements traceability' in order to meet regulatory agency audit mandates!
Chris Rhostedt: (Regence BCBSO)
Sidnei Leitao.
Hugo Loza: (JHL Soft.)
A.Gh.Bahar: Dear Colleagues. I think after a period of hesitations, many experts in software field, in practice, have come to these conclusions that you have announced them in your manifesto. I have talked to Mr. Mellor (one of the signatories), about the "heaviness" of some current methodologies and tools in the past. I think most of us, when using any methodology for most of our projects, had to note to our customers, that we have used a "customized" version of the methodology. Now you have gathered all the "pure" of the so-called "best practices in practice!" in software development under a roof as Agile Software Development. Do not forget that when any patient is a new case for a doctor, he/she does not ask his/her patients to do a broad and pre-written list of medical tests. So is with developing software for our customers. I agree with you and I will be very happy if I can to do any thing in this way. A.Gh.Bahar.

Sascha Kiefer: Even if it's sometimes hard to convince people in big organizations I'm willing to keep trying. Because I think it's an excellent way for todays successful projects.
