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.

Cees de Groot: (eBay Stupid me - all this time I thought I signed the manifesto right after it came out! I probably let habit prevail - put the manifest on a story card and signed that. In any case - this is what I've been doing over the last decade-and-a-bit, and this is the only thing I've consistently seen working. It's a no-brainer, now if anyone can please tell me how to *easily* convince the business owners of this...

Eduardo Moranchel: Agile is probably the best thing that happened to me as a professional, It allows teams to develop more efficiently and create better products but more important than that it frees the people to openly collaborate and to be always contributing to the project. More communication has proven extremely valuable in the development process allowing everyone to give their best for the benefit of the software being developed. Also this methodology aided by TDD or XP removes fear of change and huge refactors from the team since there is always tests and experience behind it, good communication, close customer collaboration, and clear goals free the developers from fear which in my opinion is a priceless advantage.

Ronaldo Blanc Rocha: (Summa Technologies do Brasil) Way to go....
Rick Kennett: (E&I Cooperative Service) While an Agile approach works amazingly well, it does leave the team open to the autopsies and second guessing of Luddites, the infidels of organizational learning. Thankfully, success typically overcomes all the whining and builds momentum and a stronger organization. Try preaching this : Integrity + Knowledge = Competency Competency + Trust = Speed.............. Speed + Learning = Adaptation........ Adaptation + Purpose = Survival

Anil Saha: (A bank) Agile is fresh air in the system development processes. The age old waterfall model is very good on paper, but most of the times it fails to deliver best result with optimum use of money and resources. Although, there are two sides of a coin, I believe agile will the choice for more projects in down the line. It is still evolving with a huge community support. The twelve founding principles are excellent guidelines for us who practices agile. My only concern is it should not be over blotted like open source technologies with no control.
