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.

Abhishek Choudhary: With almost one half and a decade of software and systems development, I can only look back and gasp at how positively different my contributions to the industry could have been only if I had more effort spent on interacting with individuals rather than tools, focussed on software functionality rather than the look and feel of documents, collaborated with customers rather than try to get a better deal, and been able to be more flexible in my plans rather than adhere to plans only because they had been signed off. While the conservative processes have their merits, agile methodologies far outweigh them.
Aleksander Brancewicz: I've been successfully leading J2EE development initiatives for several years so far. Impact is moved from in detail defined process to people collaboration thus building teams, people enrollment and creating learning organization are crucial. Additionally best agile teams are those organized around features (full flow coverage) instead of technical components. Companies with well organized processes around components and formal technical leadership may not benefit from change to Agile. As a result their current structure may work best for them and should not be distorted.
Andrew Pham: (independent consultant) Agile does bring a lot of value to IT development by making the process simpler and team more focused on value and software delivery!

Marc Story: (Pinnacol Assurance) Serving as a Product Manager as well as a Project Mangager following Agile principles helps deliver the most value in the shortest timeframe and eliminate uneeded, low-value work. It also makes software development about benefits from fucntionality instead of documentation.
Strafford Walton.
