Laura Burke Olson

Laura Burke Olson has worked as an Agile Coach and a consultant and for globally distributed software development teams at IHS Markit, Appia, and Rally Software. She aligned teams to accomplish large projects and improve their systems for software development. She facilitated planning activities that established clarity, trust, and commitment between the teams, the business, and its customers.

Laura created a program for IHS Markit (now part of S&P) called Great Teams. The program is a train-the-trainer course on teamwork that is used to both launch new teams and to improve the collaboration of existing teams. Prior to that, she was a Release Train Engineer, Agile Coach, and Scrum Master. At Appia, she was a ScrumMaster and became entrenched in the technical side of software. At Rally, she created the role of an internal facilitator and facilitated strategic planning for the company. Her mentor was the late Jean Tabaka.

Laura is a regular speaker on facilitation, teamwork, and Agile transformations for distributed teams at local meetups and national conferences.
