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.

Nirman Doshi: I firmly believe, Agile is way better software development methodology, especially when the development team is smaller in size of 20-25 or less. But when the development team is large and project is also larger in magnitude then how to maintain it is still a mystery for me. Any response to it will better help me deciding this methodology for any bigger software. Thanks a lot. This website is quite informative and its point to point. Nirman Doshi, Vadodara-15

Stefan Papp: (Hagenberg Software GmbH) As CTO of Hagenberg Software, I sign the manifesto on behalf of my company. We believe in the paradigm change to create Software as it was postulated by Sam Guckenheimer in "Software Engineering with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System". We have evaluated the benefits of agile software development with a mixture of SCRUM, XP, MSF and volere requirements engineering. We conclude from this experience: A combination of the best ideas of agile methodologies will will produce better software with less expenses in at least 80% of all projects.
Jerry Kew: (Artery Solutions Ltd) My methodology, "to define is to deliver" is based on a foundation of AGILE principles of team and process management, combined with the database lying at the core of the development.

Instead of working isolated these agile methods are about bringing back the enjoyment to developing successful software in close collaboration with my clients, peers and stakeholders, which is the very reasons most of us came to programming computers in the first place. Thanks, folks! I'm proud to be part of a this way of making things happen !!!!!
