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.

Calle Stodberg: Software artist
Tamir Dashdavaa: I discovered the Agile Manifesto while searching for the best ways of software development. Implementing Scrum with my team (and getting projects delivered) was the best ever experience in my professional life.
Filipe Paz Rodrigues.
Luis Javier Sanchez Martin: (Microsoft)
Mark S. Johnston: While I'm very late to actually sign the manifesto, I see that I've been following key parts of this for years (and struggling realizing that other key parts were absent). Now that I've come across these codified points, I plan to review them regularly and make them a part of daily work (and life). Many thanks to the authors and supporters!
Uwe Küchler: ( Not only are these values the key to getting the most out of today's technology -- they're also key to the progress of IT itself.

Hannibal Sheng: (herotree)

Rolf Allard van Hagen: (4Visions) Full heartedly, with positive attitude, making progress through re-intvention.
Xiaoming Wang: (Minster Consulting) Agile has become part of my life and many people's life as a methodology to solve any problems. The combination of agile and lean also plays a great role in organization transition.

Pierre-Emmanuel Dautreppe: (DotNetHub) I have practiced XP for few years, enough to see it's just a much better way to work ! This manifesto reflects the way I want to follow in my daily work !
Koutoku Nagata: (softkaihatsu) Agile is wonderful thougts and methods for works of infomation technology.
xuhuiqian: (fujitsu)
Felipe Plets: ( Being agile is one of the most important things to me, as an Developer and as a person that want to do the difference for others and for the humanity I think to have clear objectives, focus on the needs and on collaboration are the most important aspects.
Juliana Villas Boas Fonseca: (QualidaTI)
Andreas Schroeder: (LMU Munich) Using classical software development processes is very much like believing that the vodoo magic of bloated documentation and management rituals will make your projects succeed. Using Agile means using empirically tested and sound methods in which careful observation and quick feedback guide you to objective success.
Matthew Conger-Eldeen.
David Frey: Over the past several years of applying Agile, I have found it to be a more intuitive approach to how I work and provides me, my teams, and customers with a much more beneficial experience.

Mark Barulic.
Tibor Laszlo: (Hewlett Packard) Being involved in a large variety of projects, I have seen the advantages of using Agile development, the disadvantages of not using it, as well as the failures due to its improper use. So if used right in the right context it's a definitive advantage in our days - for the customer, for the provider and for the team as well.
Alexander Kluge: ( Together with the publications of 37signals (Getting Real & Rework) the Agile Manifesto is very good starting point to learn the agile way of developing and acting! I also see it as a lesson (learned) for life in general. Thx!

Tom Corcoran: ( Uncovering the 4 tenets of the agile manifesto was a fine effort. It's a constant struggle to fight the old processes in companies but we will carry forth.
Marcos Tapajós: (
Tim Hart: I aim to inspire people to find and implement better ways of working, to assist people to focus on what is valuable and to highlight what is reducing their ability to contribute value. I have found agile principles to be very valuable in small and medium teams in software and other activities.
Leslie Weaver: It is my experience that incorporating the principles and ideas set forth in this Manifesto leads to successful teams and projects, much more so than traditional SDLC techniques, principles, and methodologies.
