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.

Julien Mazloum: (OutSofting) I am proudly signing this Agile Manifesto. I agree this is the way software should be developed. The path is still long until we finally create a real profession for software developers but this was an important milestone on the way forward.
Lorenzo Bortolotto: (Noris Software) this is the right way to develop and improve our software!
Greg Chatham: It's made sense in three organizations where I've helped roll it out. I like making my Customers happy and I've been able to do that much more often since I started down this path 9 years ago.
jeroen crabbe: (EDS/HP ) great
Manish Mittal: (Avaya Inc) I totally agree because this is totally meant for the benefit of customer, who finally needs the product. The Change is requirement is easy to handle. Also, Only motivated and responsible people can be accountable and make it work , so thats very important but as well make everybody understand that it may / may not always be the case :(

I've been following the agile movement since 3 years now and hereby state, that being agile is one of the key factors to software engineering success. Whilst agile thinking and doing is obligatory, it only is a fraction of the whole to professional software engineering.

Miguel Rosario: Delivery of good, clean, and well designed software is the key to providing the competitive edge. Over-designed apps usually die in the face of rapidly deployed agile apps. Under-designed apps are the bane of software maintenance and are spared death at times dependant on how well their ally Mr. Refactoring can assist; usually though, he is the one ordering the execution of the same. Middle ground must be sought.
Guenter Zachmann: After more than 30 years experience in software development I recognize the principles behind Lean, Agile and Scrum as the methods that ever have been used intuitively in development of successful software products. Success usually leads to career opportunities, growth of organization and divergence of expertise and decision-making authority, and then processes are required to close the gap between hierarchies, collaborating sub-orgs, authority and expertise. There is a high seduction to implement an increasing number of processes to satisfy the demands of hierarchies, individuals in leading positions end even processes previously existing. In the progressed state misrouted processes cause a kind of self-strangulation, which leads to loss of motivation on the expert levels, loss of creativity and innovation, failure of competitive products and finally loss of success. I'm full of hope that the spirit of Lean and Agile will be able to crack the vicious circle of self-strangulation by misrouted processes and to bring back sanity and reason to development of software products in bigger organizations.
