Several years ago, Diane traded a career in corporate America for a life of coaching and she has never looked back. She now uses her 13 years of experience to help groups, from Fortune 50 companies to the U.S. Government, transform their people into high-performing teams. Drawing from kanban, systems thinking and psychology, Diane teaches teams to practically apply an agile mindset, and in the process, find joy in their work again. Whether it’s creating story maps, holding retrospectives or navigating the challenges of working on a distributed team, she partners with the people closest to the work to uncover solutions to their pressing problems. Teams learn how to collaborate more effectively and experiment more frequently so they can deliver products and software their customers love. As a frequent conference presenter, Diane also enjoys connecting with others who share her passion for continuous learning. She co-chaired the Collaboration, Culture & Teams track for Agile 2014 and Agile 2015. For Agile 2016, she was the Program Chair for the Process at Scale program and returned for Agile 2017 as the People Program Chair. You can see where she’s speaking next here: http://onbelay.co.
