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.

I expect all my employees to do the same.

David Easterling: (Prosoft Nearshore) I have been working in the IT industry for over 15 years. Through my work at Prosoft Nearshore, I see first hand the benefits of the agile approach to software development every single day. Not only does an agile development approach generate higher quality, but the software development work gets done more efficiently. Also, many people seem to get more satisfaction from the agile scrum environment due to better communication, collaboration and project planning. At Prosoft Nearshore, we offer agile outsourcing services. Our software developers embrace the agile methodology, and are conveniently located nearshore in Latin America. We work with many U.S. companies, partnering with their internal dev teams to offer increased bandwidth and velocity. Agile methods enable our software engineers to be active members of the software development team, participating and even leading daily scrum meetings, and working very effectively with their onshore team members.
Laszlo Meszaros: (Expertise Team) The Agile Manifesto has significantly changed my approach to software development and to any problems that I need to solve.

I am thankful to the authors!
