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.

Mario Estrella: ( I had reached a point in my career where I was ready to bail out of my chosen profession. But my recent discovery of agile methods has led me to re-discover my passion for software development. Since I've started my agile learnings, I'm "eating" up every book, article and posting I can about agile. Spanish being my first lenguage, I've even dared and coined a term to better describe agile practices & methods: "agilmatica".
Bernard Walden: (Transurban)
Emmanuel Jay: (SoftInstigate) Agile makes Software development an art! Following the manifesto we have developed a solution (Projectivity for SCRUM) for optimizing the management of SCRUM projects (resource management and access to the relevant documents for every actor of the project is made easy and contributes to the improvement of the team's collaborative work). Feel free to contact me directly to discuss our solution and visit our web site at
