Dirk-Jan Swagerman

Connecting people, business and systems, to execute and deliver your innovation portfolio, is what I bring to the table.

Having seen the full spectrum of system & software development, from embedded in complex systems, web applications and image processing involving AI algorithms, I understand that software is both an asset and a debt. I help businesses transform legacy code, improving quality, reducing cost and increasing output. I have learned that quality translates directly into speed.

I am a mentor and a coach for system and software architects, enjoy developing people, strengthening both their “soft” and “hard” skills. A conceptual and strategic thinker diving deep into content matters. I am trusted across functions and partner well with the regulatory & quality function.

Having been responsible for heading R&D up to 155 FTE, I am familiar with execution on different levels and build strong cross functional and cross site relationships. Proud to have brought the Philips Azurion Image Guide Therapy platform to the market. Reducing the maintenance cost by halving the code size (8M->4M lines of code), leading this by effort taking the pen. I bring sustainable quality and craftmanship to your team, resulting in lower cost of non-quality and better returns on your innovation investment.
