Charter of the Nominating and Governance
Committee of the Board Of Directors

            This Charter specifies the scope of the responsibilities of the Nominating and Governance Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Agile Software Corporation (the “Company”), and the manner in which those responsibilities shall be performed, including its structure, processes and membership requirements.

            The primary responsibilities of the Committee are to (i) identify individuals qualified to become Board members; (ii) select, or recommend to the Board, director nominees for each election of directors; (iii) develop and recommend to the Board criteria for selecting qualified director candidates; (iv) consider committee member qualifications, appointment and removal; (v) recommend corporate governance principles, codes of conduct and compliance mechanisms applicable to the Company, and (vi) provide oversight in the evaluation of the Board and each committee of the Board.


            The Committee shall be comprised of at least two or more directors, each of whom shall satisfy the independence requirements established by the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc (“Nasdaq”); provided that if there are three directors, one director who does not meet the independence criteria of Nasdaq may serve on the Committee (1) if the individual is an officer who owns or controls more than 20% of the Company voting securities or (2) pursuant to the “exceptional and limited circumstances” exception as provided under the rules of Nasdaq.

The members of the Committee shall be appointed by the Board and shall serve until their successors are duly elected and qualified or their earlier resignation or removal.  Any member of the Committee may be removed or replaced by the Board.  Unless a chairman is elected by the full Board, the members of the Committee may designate a chairman by majority vote of the full Committee.  The Committee may, from time to time, delegate duties or responsibilities to subcommittees or to one member of the Committee.

A majority of the members shall represent a quorum of the Committee, and, if a quorum is present, any action approved by at least a majority of the members present shall represent the valid action of the Committee.

The Committee shall have the authority to obtain advice or assistance from consultants, legal counsel, accounting or other advisors as appropriate to perform its duties hereunder, and to determine the terms, costs and fees for such engagements.  The Committee may retain or terminate any search firm to be used to identify director candidates and to determine and approve the terms, costs and fees for such engagements of director candidates.  The fees and costs of any consultant or advisor engaged by the Committee to assist the Committee in performing its duties hereunder shall be borne by the Company.


            The Committee shall meet as often as it deems necessary to fulfill its responsibilities hereunder, and may meet with management or individual directors at any time it deems appropriate to discuss any matters before the Committee.

            The Committee shall maintain written minutes of its meetings, which minutes will be filed with the minutes of the meetings of the Board.


To fulfill its responsibilities and duties hereunder, the Committee shall:
