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.

Aakash: (UPC-Cablecom Switzerland) I support the content of Agile Manifesto and fully agree to the concept of Product Building and supporting Open-ness over bureaucracy..
Ivan: (Adzuna) We are strong proponents of Agile development methodologies as these allow us to quickly and actively more to serve our users needs.
Juan Carlos Rios Villota: Cambiando la forma de pensar y de hacer las cosas en el desarrollo de productos de calidad.
Hayram Nicacio: ( This works in the opposite way of the common sense, without a pre-defined contract. This requires all involved people to be honest/trustfull for a common goal. It reshapes the client/supplier relationship towards teamwork.
Stephen C. Daukas.
Carl Sudholz: (Fast Task Tools) In agriculture, the context of management and needs for information, are massively complex and ever changing. This results in most decision makers (not just farmers) not actually knowing what information is useful until after they have it. Often, what was thought to be useful in theory is not in practice and what is useful in one case is not in another. By then however its all too late, the software project budget is well and truly spent. The Agile Manifesto and supporting principals is in my view, the only way to create useful, usable and available software tools that truly contribute to decision making, management and productivity in agriculture.
Martin E. Brüggemann: (emarsys eMarketing Systems)
Jorge Melgar: (Arkano Software) Firmemente adhiero a los principios del manifiesto y trato de ponerlos en práctica en la organización.
Pierre Lawrence: (Toyota GB PLC) I fully support and endorse the agile manifesto
Werner Kroer: (ConsonIT) Projects are complex social systems. The Agile Manifesto accommodates important values towards effective management of projects and programs.
Glenn Briskin : ( It works.
Steve Lyle: Agile as a method to manage work and progress puts people first in the equation. People collaborating together in an atmosphere of inclusion, openness, and respect is the reason for the work we do. This founding principal provides the greatest strength from which we enjoy the best results. Thank you thought leaders.
Mark Barney.
Oluwatimilehin Ayeni: (Funds & Electronic Transfer Solutions) I am a strong proponent of Agile Manifesto and fully consent to the concept of Product Building, Customer Satisfaction and Open-ness over bureaucracy. I believe a lot can be achieve when ideas are brought together to achieve a common goal. It is important that success is measured by the customers' satisfaction and not by profit margins, thereby laying emphasis on quality of a product in a competitive market.
Rodney Weis: ( An agile process that is focused on delivering well-crafted, concise and well-documented code will serve the needs of any organization well.
Will Webster: (Red Turtle Solutions Ltd) Having practised agile software development for many years I can vouch for its merits. The Agile Manifesto is a great set of guidelines that are not implementation specific and are thus timeless.
John G Pasko: (Karl Storz Imaging)
Jeremy Kothe: (Health Communication Network)
Badreddine BENAIDJA: Dans la plupart des projets lancés aujourd'hui, nous observons que les besoins et/ou les priorités changent constamment, et dans un contexte "business" le time to market est un facteur qui fait la différence. C'est dans ce contexte la que je trouve que le agilemanifesto est LA réfence pour s'organiser et de travailler afin de mettre en place des logiciels réellement utiles, et utilisables.
Jorge Gouveia Araújo.
Morteza: (Asa)
Donald Havas.
Cazenave Pierre-Olivier.
Cynthia Sano: (Sano Solutions LLC) I feel The Agile Manifesto is a Call for a New World Order in software and technology development culture. It calls for respecting the sovereignty of the human spirit first; it calls for bringing forth a new paradigm, and enlightened change to the persisting current corporate culture where we perform our work. I believe The Agile Manifesto is a bridge to bring us to a holistic state that best serves our technology and humanitarian evolution.

Xavier Brassinne.
Timothy Li.
António Soares: The Agile Manifesto expresses values ​​and principles fully aligned with the current need to respond to complexity and to constant change in Software Development Projects. By stating an idea based on values and principles rather then rules and processes, this group creates a new (and interesting) paradigm in software development where people finally matter and where people are called to learn and to improve continuously by them selves.
Cilas de Freitas: These principles are very useful when you have to make a decision at your work. If you follow then, you remain agile!
Rezso Barna: (Sense/Net Zrt.)
Joe Sathyan: (Webnyx Technologies Limited)
Jan Siemaszko: (Spire Business Services) As a startup we had to decide on a software development methodology that we felt would work well today as well as tomorrow. Agile and waterfall have their merits but only one is forward looking, capable of regular change and allows for a quick release schedule. What’s most amazing is we can integrate much more than just development into our agile philosophy. Being a small team we have managed to incorporate marketing, support and even some sales tasks into our agile workflow.
Komal Pavitra: (GE Healthcare) I support the content of Agile Manifesto and fully agree to the concept of Product Building and supporting Openness over bureaucracy
Dan Dienst: After using Agile for over 5 years, I thought it might be time to add my name to the cause. Well done thought leaders.
Thomas Gabrowski: (Target Shooting App) I could not agree with it more!
Ng'ethe Maina: I Ng'ethe S. Maina do solemnly affirm that I will faithfully execute the Agile Manifesto, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend it at all times, so help me GOD.
Jens Scharnetzki.
Marc Diana: (BSG) I can't imagine moving back to a SDLC environment after using an agile framework. Being able to see increments of your work coming together to form the larger system is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had.
Alexandren Liege.
Saurabh Kumar Sinha: I strongly endorse this manifesto for the sake of emerging changing in market channels and keep strategy to pace with the tremendous market of users and customers.
wangjiangshao: Software development should be a natural, harmonious process, as we eat and sleep.
