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.


Signatures Received: 22 Mar to 30 Mar 2015
Denis Shapovalenko: I agree with the Agile-principles
Alastair Thomson: (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Insitute) As Chief Information Officer at the NHLBI, I am committed to changing the way the US Federal Government develops software by implementing Agile principles throughout my organization from Agile software development to incorporating Agile thinking into everything we do. Working with acquisitions experts, I am seeking to find solutions to the problem of contracting Agile software development while remaining true to the Federal Acquisition Regulations. And no, it's not impossible!

Alexis Cedeno: (MedCloud Depot)
Alvaro Diaz Valenzuela: (Escuela de Finanzas Avanzadas Aplicadas)
Dave Zolinski: (MESSA) Agile development practices have changed our organization. Projects come in on time, within budgets, and meets expectations of our customers. Our development teams are happier and overall work experiences are better. Many reasons but overall it is the communication aspects and the team buy in that aided in our transformation. Expectations change and we can change with it swiftly.
Rajagopala Udupa: Everybody earns their living by serving others. Some do it for commercial gains and some do it as philanthropy. At the core of serving others comes Individuals, Interactions, Collaboration, Responding to change and Outcome delivery. Cannot agree more with the manifesto. regards, Rajagopala Udupa

Anastacio Rodríguez García: (QuetzalSoft)
Dr. James Davis: Traditional project management methods are great but being based on a predictive methodology, it does not always work for software development. In most cases, empirical methodologies produce better results.

Aniil Kumar: I support the agile manifesto because it can be beneficial to the customer and development team, if implemented properly. It also helps the business to build software that works without having to wait for a long time.
Marco Albarelli: Years ago I thought I was smarter than the Agile people. Turns out I was not so I converted to Agile too :) It's been years now and it's been one of my best choices
Dan Rumney: All too often, I've seen teams fail to succeed with Agile methodologies, because they've failed to understand and embrace the Manifesto (or, at least, its principles). I've also been lucky enough to coach a team who *are* living the principles and that team is flying!
Dhruv Patel.

Cameron Macdonald: I wholeheartedly believe in these values and principles. So much so that I have based my entire career on them.
Ammar Ali: Agile processes are highly collaborative, iterative and all focused on the rapid delivery of software with minimal coding!! What more you could ask for!
Ange Kallinikos.
Ashish Yadav: I support Agile Manifesto and the main reason behind this is it gives me the freedom of working in quick turn-around environment, i can challenge my limits and push them one step more every time i take on some task. It's been great working in such environment and i would love to continue as long as possible.
Kristen Swearingen.
Vitor Castelo: I completely agree with the principles and already had the chance to experienced its effects and benefits a couple of times in projects where they were correctly applied.
Dr Sory Diallo: (NetGraph Software France)
Bharat Sharma: (Monsoon Consulting) I whole heartily endorsed Agile manifesto and will do best of my ability to follow the agile principals
Simon Chesney: In my experience, following Agile principles leads teams to be more empowered & more accountable in general, and that in turn leads to better outcomes - including happier customers, developers and their collaborators. Iteration and regular reflection (for example, retrospectives) creates opportunity for experimentation, measurement and improvement in team practices and team dynamics. An emphasis on the significance of individuals and interactions tends also to engender a culture of mutual respect - both within and across team boundaries. And in the relative chaos of hyper-growth environments, an Agile approach provides a means to be as responsive as possible to rapidly emerging and changing requirements.
Julien ALVES: (Virtual and Intelligent Information) I endorse the Agile Manifesto and hereby declare that throughout my career, from my current junior state until my very last day of work in relation with Software Development, I will apply it everyday and pass on the word around me.
Brahmanand Reddy Patil: I have worked and seen the world of waterfall model, processes, V-Models within V-model. The Agile principles are so simple and easy to understand after having seen the expensive failures with the traditional models. An instance of a root-cause analysis of a field failure in the Waterfall model is a good example of the nightmare the team/s go through. The kind of discussions there are more to blame the rest of the teams or individuals in the process. However, with the responsibility and ownership existing in the Agile teams (Scrum teams), I am sure there is enough evidence that the team will work towards solution than the processes.
Steven Averay: (Rally)
Matthias Niete: (OIO - Orientation in Objects GmbH)
Mark Davis: Working in IT across a multitude of industries I have seen an organic move to these practices. Establishing effective solutions to the changing landscape through Agile principals provides clarity.
Anoop Sood: Endorse the Agile Manifesto. Adds significant value for the end users of the final product, and makes the development process fulfilling!
Michael Hoche: (Airbus DS)
Douglas Griffiths: (Wells Fargo) I have used Agile since 2008 to build, deploy and support the Wells Fargo Comsumer Lending Capital Markets Trading System.
Dr Simon Philbin: (Imperial College London) Adopting agile while drawing on appropriate levels of traditional and process driven project management offers significant scope to change the way projects are managed across many industries.
