Diane’s passion for building capacity in nonprofit organizations is the link between her early career work as a grantmaker and now as a nonprofit consultant. Diane and her team at DH Leonard Consulting & Grant Writing Services have secured more than $93 million dollars since 2006 in competitive grant awards for their clients. The team began utilizing the Scrum framework in 2016 both to run their own teams, and also to help their nonprofit clients improve their grant seeking processes and overall operations efficiency. As a result of adopting Scrum, the daily operations and efficiency of the DH Leonard Consulting team has significantly improved and more importantly, their nonprofit clients that are engaged in the Scrum framework have seen an increase in their success percentage for applications as well as overall dollars awarded.
