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.

Sunil Kumar Sharma: (Acision) Working in IN domain,using Agile technology.
Hany Iskandar: (QAF) My humble 10 years of experience in software development, deployment, and implementation in a rough and tough environment have taught me the same values and principles present in the Agile Manifesto.
Mushtaq Mohammed.
Pablo Martin De Natale: I fully support the Agile Manifesto!
Srikanth Kuruganti: (TCS) Having worked in many sw projects at different roles including customer interfacing one, I agree and advocate for the Agile manifesto as this is the only optimum way of delivering to products to customers. Changes from customers has to be included in the release plan as this makes the product usable by customers.
Dorkus McDweeb: Great, just great, haven't we been doing this all along anyway? Just add's words to it now!
David Ngo: (medidata)
Ed Sjaal: (FBTips)

Mahesh Subramanian: (Serena Software)
Ramesh Nanjundaiah: I Support the Agile Manifesto!
Marudaraj Jivaraj: (CSG Systems Inc.)
Richard J Armstrong: Before I started to 'get' agile my development learning was based almost entirely of learning new technologies. Agile has woken me up to fundamentals and the fact that I don't need to rush out and learn the latest and greatest, now I can choose tools which compliment effective practices.
Joost Nuyten: This is how to improve quality and productivity
Evandro Moreira Pinto: (WM2 Informática) Sou Professor M.Sc, Pesquisador e Consultor em processos de software e sou simpático à idéia de metodologias ágeis. Trabalho com desenvolvimento de software há vinte e cinco anos e luto a cada dia para a simplificação dos processos de desenvolvimento, eliminando burocracias desnecessárias. Isso não significa que devamos desenvolver software iniciando o trabaho com atividades de codificação, como se fazia nos anos 70. Este é um extremo ruim. Também sou contra a documentaçao de tudo que se faz e tudo que se pretende fazer. Isso é outro extremo que também é ruim. Deve existir um ponto de equilíbrio entre esses dois extremos. Sou a favor da elaboração de modelos e diagramas com elevado nível de abstração para dirigir a construção incremental e iterativa de produtos de software. Gostaria de participar de grupos de discussão sobre este assunto. Obrigado. Evandro Moreira Pinto.
José Renato Pinto Alves Junior: (WAIS - Tecnologia da Informação)
Jim Winters: (ANS Medical)
Juliao Duartenn: (
Guruprakash J: (EeAaZz) Agile has made a tremendous change to software community. I extend my full support to the Agile & Agile Manifesto.
Krishna K. Chary: (FDA/OIT) The Precedence of Trust over Contractual interpretations.
Jacqui Snook: Makes perfect sense to me - just need to convince all the pointy haired bosses out there!
Lovish Dhawan: The agile principles recognize that software projects are subject to continuous change, both in terms of technologies used and client expectations, and that software has properties that allow different management techniques to be used.
Ayla Singhal: (Siemens PLM Software)
Srikanth Perath: (Satyam Computer Services Ltd.) Want to be a part of uncovering better ways of s/w development. My belief in Agile Manifesto brought me here.
Justin Hallet: (Autodesk)
Michael McGrady: (Topia Technology)
Jon Palmisano: (Agitar Technologies)
Yosep Kim: (J.Lu) A company I am working for is implementing this methodology, and I love it. It makes most sense. I would like to learn more about it, so I can use it for my upcoming projects that I will manage. Thanks for the great ideas!
Ed Sjaal: (FBTips)
Luis Pabon: I was introduced to the Agile Manifesto recently on a Software Engineering course, and it stands for everything I want from a career.
Paulo Henrique Trecenti: (Art Software Informática)
Shaharyar Saddique Mughal: I truly believe on the philosophy Agile Manifesto, I am following as team leader in my organization all the terms of Agile Manifesto and the results are amazing. I wish to share my work and get involved to work for organization. Thanks!
Zeger Van Hese: How can I *not* support the manifesto? I support common sense, realism and pragmatism in software development and testing. The manifesto embodies all of that. Keep up the good work! Best regards, Zeger
Ney Eichler Cardoso Filho.
Dave Kellogg: (Mark Logic)
Sam Schutte: (Unstoppable Software, Inc.) I have found the Agile methods to be the crucial element that allows me to get projects done faster and better than many of my competitors and peers. Having worked in many waterfall environments where projects took years to complete, it is a breath of fresh air when a client or employer allows me to run a project in an Agile way.
Mattias Edsman: (Conevo IT Consulting)
Alejandro Quesada: (Roundbox Global) I have been an Agile adept for a long time now and consider myself a coach and somehow an evangelist as well in the company I work for now days. As a Project and Integration Manager, with experience on several types of projects, with several types of customers and having done Waterfall and Agile (xp and scrum); I can truly say that Agile has worked and is working out for me pretty good. We continuously need to adapt and Agile itself needs to be adapted to one's environment which is not only your country, culture and company, but the project itself...there is no exact recipe, but with the fundamentals one's got the tools to deliver; and that's what Agile is about. Thanks! -Alejandro
Holger Kölsch: (solusy GmbH) Agile principles are one cornerstone of our company's success. We force early and continuous delivery of high quality software. Go live with 80% implementation of your needs, but 20% of common realization time! Improve later! As our development process is based on the 'agile platform' oryco® we follow agile principles immanently. Concentrate your power on the essentials of any human effort: commitment, competence, determination and collaboration. Forget about the newest project management method that requires you to do many things that don't directly contribute to the project goals, but cost time and energy. We quote agile manifesto on our website. Keep up your good work! Best regards, Holger Kölsch
Jeliaz Chtilianov: My extensive IT experience for various industries ranging from soliciting requirements, architecting systems, software development, testing and deployment taught me the very same values and principles presented in the Agile Manifesto. However, that should not be construed as one-size fits all approach for all projects. In huge enterprise projects the traditional or hybrid methods might still be preferred to some extent.
Geert Bossuyt: Implementing the Agile Manifesto in a real world environment with real life impediments is one of the hardest things to do but it is I believe the only way to deliver real business added value.
Robson Vargas Farias: (Confederação Sicredi) Agile works, and is the unique thing that works.
Veena: (TietoEnator) Nice site !!!
Xuan Wang: (Pfizer Pharmaceuticals)
Ali Firat: (IT Service Euphrat)
David Ribeiro.
R. Srinivasa Chary: In my view that there were some fundamental principles that united these methodologies, and these principles were a notable contrast from the assumptions of the established methodologies
Marco Simoncioni: Finally someone has formalized in software development what common sense means. Thank you for your Manifesto and your efforts.
