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.

Usman Kunnath: (Syntelinc)
Walaa Mohamed: (QUTS)
Robert Fox: (University of Notre Dame) The litmus test for any methodology is whether or not it produces repeatable results. The agile principles are proven and they tend to produce win/win scenarios for the entire team involved in any software project. One of the most critical aspects of agile is that it encourages a high degree of interaction between developers, product owners, and users over the course of a development project. There's an implicit acknowledgment that for software to be effective, it has to be viewed as something in a constant state of change and improvement, akin to a living organism. Agile is a commitment to quality software and user satisfaction.

Sameer Ibrahim: Working on Agile methodlogy for close to 4+ years now. As a business analyst and a huge follower of "Common sense" approach rather than some dead approach based on black hole guidelines (read waterfall here) - I can safely say now that I am hooked onto Agile. It's plain common sense and it works. Better transparency, better client relationships, great team interaction. A proud journey man.
