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.

Syed Riyazuddin: ( I whole heartily support and practice Agile manifesto!
Jean-Charles Marty: (University of Savoie) I have been a project manager in a private company before becoming a teacher and researcher in my university. I teach Agile Software Development to students. They apply it for developing real projects for companies. The results are incredibly positive. I therefore strongly support the Agile Manifesto.
Helder Leal da Costa: (Uniso - Universidade de Sorocaba)
Rowan Sutherland: (Living Online) We support the idea of developing software rapidly and in a responsive manner. We support the idea that a working prototype can say more than pages and pages of planning will. We believe that agile methodologies allow for far greater flexibility and control in determining the best outcome for a business.
Albert Pastrana: (
Ethan Kolt.
Voskresenskaya Svetlana: (IBS) I promise to follow these provisions in my daily work
Stuart Oakley.
Tomasz Lis.
Alfred Enslin: (Westpac NZ) I have experienced every pain that Agile Software Development is trying to address. Once you have developed software in an Agile way, doing it any other way is painful, stressful and a bad experience.
Brad McBrayer.
Hiren Dalal.
Feargus O'Callaghan.
Mauricio Pacheco Barrot: (IBM)
Prof. Dr. Oliver Grieble: (Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences)

Cristian-Viktor Ardelean: I Support the Agile Manifesto!
Nyambura Muhia.
Thiago Maia.
Estela Conde Cabano: (SaecData S.A.)
George Andor: (iCode Ltd.) Agility is the ultimate attribute of sapient beings and it is imperative in order to succeed in life and evolve. Adapting to changing environments and requirements IS the NATURAL way of doing nearly anything in the world, including the highly creative work of software design and development.
Lukasz Muzyka: (People Can Code) Agile changed the way I look at complex problems. It made me a better developer, business man, a person.
Michaela Hutfles: (Premera) Value the left, but don't forget the right.
Alistair Davidson: (Eclicktick Consulting) Iterative development just plain makes more sense, particularly as the complexity of tasks increases. Managing knowledge workers with a top down management approach makes no sense in a project or in a world where a leader cannot know as much as his team. A leader empowers his team to perform. Their motivation is as important as their knowledge.
Erich S. Huang: (Duke University School of Medicine)
S. Neelkanth Sharma: I have been working in agile methodology for the last 4 years and the amount and quality of churn which we have begun to do no is far greater than what we were doing while using traditional methods of software development. There is lot of scope in agile to find if anything is wrong in the beginning itself instead of reaching the end of the journey and then finding the fault, which leaves no choice but to make the complete journey again.
Brendan Marsh: ( As an Agile Coach, I live by these values & endorse the manifesto :)
Sharoon Thomas: (Openlabs technologies & Consulting (P) Limtied)
Diêgo Bolina: (Bolina sistemas)
