Kelly Weyrauch is a Senior Principal Systems Engineer at Medtronic, with 20 years experience in delivering medical device software for pacing and defibrillation systems. As a leader of the Agile movement within Medtronic, he leads the adoption of Agile within the context of the highly regulated, Class III medical device software environment. As one of the lead authors on the AAMI Committee that produced the Technical Information Report, "Guidance on the Use of Agile Practices in the Development of Medical Device Software", Kelly worked with other industry and FDA leaders to provide guidance to the medical device industry and regulatory worlds. As a leader in the Agile community, he has blazed the trail for using Agile in the regulated world, overcoming barriers by tailoring the use of Agile to align with regulatory expectations.
