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.


Signatures Received: 07 Oct to 18 Oct 2008
Cristian Petrache: (Tyche)
Douglas Ross: (Kronos, Inc.) We can still ship crappy software! We see it all the time. Where is quality hiding? The software construction company must collaboratively foster and embrace the values of their users, their stakeholders, and their teams. If these values are collaboratively aligned at the same time, then you can expect the best of all worlds, regardless of the process. The advantage of the Agile manifesto is it steers us towards the right values and the right kinds of collaboration.
Rodrigo Ramalho: ( I believe in the principles behind the Agile Manifesto and I really believe that, by following those principles, we can provide better software, faster, while focusing more on the people involved in the process.

Luigi Anderlucci: (Accenture) After having worked in Accenture for a few years and having experienced the Waterfall development approach i've come to the conclusion that it is absolutely not the way of developing new software. I started reading the Agile development guides and i've been positively impressioned about how it can improve the overall development process and the time-to-market for new products. It is a pity i cannot apply its guidelines in my daily activities.
Tomas Eilsø: (Arenalogic) Support the agile principles. Arenalogic is a leading Danish company, developing high fidelity F-16 simulators for the military and companies in the aviation industry. visit for more info.

Edson Angoti Júnior.
Rudy Godoy Guillén: (HTU Networks) The agile model is one of the best-fitting approaches on software development for the current environment where turbulence and chaos rule over most plans and orchestations. Organizations that want to be sucessful as business should adopt this approach to be able to maintain a on-going business supporting IT infrastructure which leads to business goals.
Chad Reynoldson: (Reynoldson Control Inc.) I support the agile manifesto! I am particularly energized by working software over comprehensive documentation.
Morten Norre: (Agile Innovation) I am passionate about Agile, and so happy, it is becoming "the way" of doing software development. To me, it's all about people.
Peter Gregory, CISA, CISSP, DRCE: (
Hilario Pérez Corona: (Nabu Tecnología en Software) Esta es desde mi punto de vista, la mejor manera de desarrollar software... No se puede predecir el futuro, ni la demanda en los mercados, los requerimientos de las empresas cambian dia a dia, y esta es la mejor manera de ayudarlos a obtener una ventaja competitiva sobre su competencia.
Alfred R. Baudisch: (Auriumsoft Ltd.) Less talking, less "mimimi", more work. This goes along with the entrepreneurs: stop planning and thinking, MAKE IT REAL! What would the world be if all entrepreneurs sticked only to their ideas and didn't actually start them? We probably would be somewhat near prehistory men. It is part of my work and company process.
Juan Carlos Espindola: I am completly agree with the Agile Manifesto. Specially because right now I am suffering the CMMI level 3 certification. I realized that customers' expectations and they needs are not been taken in account, the goal is to get the certificate CMMI level 3 at any price.

Ivan Karpan.
Justin Rodenbostel.
Ashish: (Outshine Software Solutions) Have been developing application software's for more than 7 years, the thing i learned was that things change from time to time.Time has changes and we should also change the way we approach software development. Have experiences with various agile methodologies like SCRUM, XP etc. and i personally felt that they are very useful and so i convince our clients to use agile technologies as well.
Praveen.V.Nair: (NinethSense) Agile is one of the proven methodology which can let the people do BIG things simpler. I strongly support the agile manifesto!

Ben Heideveld: (Cap Gemini / ABN AMRO Bank / Sogeti) I am proud to become a signatory to the Agile Manifesto. I have programmed Agile in C++ and Magic, designed OMT/UML for agile development (yes you can!), participated in multiple Agile developments under the name of IAD (Iterative Application Development) at Cap Gemini in the mid 1990's. I know first-hand that Agile can work when: 1. You have expert-programmers on board 2. Keep teams small 2-5 programmers 3. Work through a high productivity tool or a well stocked set of libraries 4. Understand Must, Should, Could, Won't have prioritizing 5. Be passionate and empowered 6. Either document well or write self-explanatory code 7. Have a test-strategy/approach 8. Be a team before anything else. Ben Heideveld, Amsterdam.
