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.

Doug Hile: (Nationwide)
Shree Mandadi: ( I believe that this Manifesto will become the path for better, universal Software Development standards, and improve customer satisfaction.
Angel Castillo: ( I agree with the Agile Manifesto. I've used this way of developing software with Genexus for DOS (way back then) and even though I didn't have a name for it, it was very well received by customers, specially when several customers used the same software product.
Vinícius Baggio Fuentes: I believe that this manifesto will help for better software and better working environments.
Sten: (
Tim Heller: I Support the Agile Manifesto!
Sunish Sugathan: I believe that Agile Methodologies will increase customer delight and lead to more predictable software engineering projects & programs.
Bob Chesley: (NH SoftWerks LLC) Making software work the way people want it to!
Martijn Dashorst: ( I'd like to support value #5 coming from Robert Martin: *Craftsmanship over Execution* Most software development teams execute, but they don’t take care. We value execution, but we value craftsmanship more.
Doug Stewart: ( Software development practiced according to these values and principles is far more rewarding, effective, and productive then any other prescription in our field.
Alex Rosiu: (BitDefender)
Denis Dollfus: (Thomson-Reuters) I support Agile Manifesto through eXtreme Programming, which successfully makes the link between management principles and technical practices.
Ryan C. Johnson: After 24 years of experience, I can wholeheartedly say that this is the way forward.
Sammuel Washington: (Trident Saber International) I am open to consultation, sharing, and discussion in support of improving the software development lifecycle at all points: quality, cost-efficiency, cost-effectiveness, stability, robustness, adaptability, scalability, and sustainability.
Mike Clement: (
Kate Mayfield: (Mayfield Solutions) I fully support this approach and it completely reflects my own views on IT implementations for the businesses I work for. Keep it simple, do it quickly, solve their problems. The SMEs I work with need to be very flexible, grow quickly and adapt rapidly to internal and external drivers. Lengthy project planning and heavy documentation doesn't fit their needs, costs too much and by overcomplicating a situation, often dooms the project. I can't speak for large IT projects as they are beyond my experience but I wouldn't be surprised if these principles apply there too. I think faulty risk analysis lies at the bottom of the problem. How big is the risk, really? especially when analysed vs. the risk of the business not moving quickly forward.
Steve Ahlstrom.

Jari Laurila: (Ravensoft Ltd.)
Scott Heaberlin.
Alfredo Ocampo: ( Having worked in Agile environments for some years now, I really can't think of any other way to develop software. I have even applied the system into my personal life! Today I wonder how humanity survived any other way.
Sascha: (SIHV. Heidenheim) wow, working like that for years, I finally found the official name for it :-)
Kyriakos Bassinas: (IT Asset Solutions)

John Maurer: (Dominus Studios)
Valentin Ivan.
Peter Maher: (POZ Limited) All too often projects fail because they are more focused on the artefacts associated with software development rather than the software development act itself. The Agile Manifesto puts the focus back where it ought to be.
Sandeep Seerapu: I support the Agile Manifesto as I know and have seen it work..
Gary Morgan: (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) In 2007 I began a program called Accelerating “translation of science to solutions”. Early on, I was introduced to the Agile Manifesto and studied Scrum, so I used the Scrum framework as the basis of improving our ROI for our Laboratory research initiatives. Today (2009), the agile virus is alive and spreading nicely within the Laboratory. We are demonstrating improved performance in our research initiatives.
Kevin Matthies: (Raytheon) We have been practicing the fundamentals Agile for a long time and we have recently begun to utilize the techniques across a broader set of programs
Roger Wickes: (Atlantica Investments, Inc.) While both approaches have their place, I favor the adaptive evolution of a system.
Chidanand Naik: I am Agile practitioner on various projects, currently helping other professionals to adapt Agile methodologies in order to get accomplished & share benefits across stakeholders
David Hodgson: (Free Range Apes)
