Neville Roy Singham (born May 13, 1954) is the founder and former chairman of ThoughtWorks,[2] a privately owned global IT consultancy that delivers custom software, software tools, and consulting services to Global 1000 companies. His company is closely associated with agile methods of software development.

Singham is known as an Agile evangelist, and is one of the figures who popularised Lean Revolution, like that of the Toyota business model.[3] He is also a major opponent of the proprietary software development and supports open access and the creative commons movement. Elaborating on this, Singham says, "I believe the world should have access to the best ideas in software for free. My goal is a technically-superior infrastructure to solve the world's problems."
