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.

John McAdams: (State of Oregon, DHS-OIS-AMS) We started using Agile development methodologies in late 2005 transitioning from a full waterfall process. As a team lead, I love it! My developers love it. However, management is still (in late 2007) trying to grasp the full meaning of agile and how it fits in with a government agency. We will get there!
