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.

Rahij Ramsharan: (National University of SIngapore)
Bester Mashawa: Clarity, simplicity and ease of use; are a function of the Agile methodology. Agile eliminates development or technical embellishment and places emphasis on user or customer need. HAIL to the gods of a nimble thought process. “To understand how to put questions presupposes a certain education.” Hegel “As soon as we abandon our own reason, and are content to rely upon authority, there is no end to our troubles.” Bertrand Russell
Rawan Soudah.
Le Huy: ( Very few people can predict, it is really hard to do it in now rapid changing environment. For the vast majority in order to survive we need to be able to learn and adapt based on short feedback loop. Agile's principles recognize and advocate us to move in that way in software development's activities. They are equally true and applicable in other areas

mokhtar beldjehem.
Tom Cabanski: (Southside Software LLC)
Michael Larsen: (SideReel) Having made a transition from a traditional environment to an agile environment in 2011, I consider it to be a much more effective process for development and for testing. I'm hoping I never have to go back to the "old ways".
Reinoud van Oirschot.
Cynthia Thomas.
Ben Chesnut: I attest that to be customer focused and attentive, as well as human focused over process focused will bring us much closer to success than the reverse.
Alexey Koshevoy: (ProfPoint) We support and use Agile Manifesto in a teaching process
Victor Ng-Thow-Hing: ( Honda Research Institute USA) Agile development principles helps to make sure that software is relevant to the users. It prevents developers from becoming to insular and adding features or overdesigning software for phantom future needs.

Vishal Somal: I didnt realise that I was more Agile a decade back when working with a small IT company in Bombay, India till I studied/got certified in Agile PM last March (2011). I could relate to all the Agile practices more closely and felt that I lost the agility working with large offshore based companies where processes are created to give assurance to overseas customers about quality.
Aaron Steele: As developers and technologists, we have, in many cases, forgotten why we are employed; to add and create customer value. Agile helps bring back that focus.
Ryan S Hobson: (Technique Group) When the seemingly complex can be expressed so simply, we can see a way forward clearly. May the Agile Manifesto continue to help focus and improve us.

Christian Engel: Agile methods are the way to unleash the potential and diversity of the team and leading to solutions that suit the customer.
Juliana Herbert: (Herbert Consulting) I totally support the Agile Manifesto, mainly because it makes sense... After having had a large experience with quality models, methods, methodologies and frameworks, working with agile principles on software development seems a very interesting, natural and easy to implement way to finally intellectualize the way we work. Principles like self-management teams, to value people and interactions and be always able to adaptations are great keys to increase team productivity and morale.
Christian To: (FACTSET)
Nidhi Prasad: (HCL)
Damien Sawyer: (DaD Digital) Fantastic stuff. The longer I work in this industry, the more I see the value of this methodology.
