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.

Mikkel Thormod: (Headfitted) I have been leading software developers in the past 9 years. I have tried XP and Scrum with great success (especially with Scrum). I see the manifesto as a "mindset" for software development, or any kind of development. But I miss something about "trust over control". You gain so much by trusting people instead of controlling and monitoring them...

Clive Boulton: (SVIC) My experience Agile works. ISO does not work. My team built a multi-year track record of publishing quarterly new ERP software releases including new innovation and customer bug fixes. Pprior to Agile and my worst experince we fully implemented ISO 9002. Old school mgmt loves ISO because they love complete control. Within a year nothing shipped. Go Agile.

Sivasubramanian: (Covansys) Agile seems to be the only realistic approach towards software development. While i haven't worked on an agile environment, the more i read about it, i get more answers for the questions i have in a waterfall based project executions. Agile is more suitable for web based projects where time-to-web should be really short. Thanks for putting up this forum
