Neil leads the Software Engineering team at Mirada Medical and strives to improve team collaboration using Agile and Lean practices to help deliver innovative clinical software applications. Neil’s early career was working as a software and systems engineer on real time avionics development. In 2006 he transferred to Siemens Healthcare and acquired 10 years of experience as an analyst and project manager, working for Siemens Healthcare on large scale software medical imaging application development. During this time, he gained his grounding in Agile software development, qualifying as a scrum master and proceeding to lead agile transition programmes across two different parts of the organisation in radiation oncology and molecular imaging. He had the opportunity to train on Scrum with Ken Schwaber and Roman Pichler as well as working with Tom and Mary Poppendieck on implementing lean software development concepts. In 2016, Neil joined Mirada, a small independent enterprise developing innovative medical imaging applications and he has helped grow and develop the team and the product portfolio. This environment provided him the opportunity to analyse the differences between big corporation and small enterprise agile and what lean development looks like from differing perspectives. Neil’s influences comes from a blend of lean, agile and UX philosophies but is an advocate of the principle that software development is ultimately about people and teamwork.
