Janice built a storied career in Silicon Valley as a startup founder, product manager, and confidante for entrepreneurs and enterprise executives alike. From creating the second-ever personal interface to the web in the early days of Netscape, to leading the world’s first user experience firm, Janice has often found herself “sitting at the bleeding edge and making it boring” by figuring out how to make the latest evolutions repeatable, useful, and commonplace. Janice currently supports “VLOs” (very large organizations) and several venture-funded startup companies, federal government entities, and non-profit organizations, helping them do more with less, make bold moves and achieve extraordinary results. Janice's hobbies include healing generational trauma, challenging the patriarchy, and icing migraines.
Jason leads a team at VMware of more than 50 product managers and designers who work with the Department of Defense and other government clients to build mission-critical software. He co-founded the first Lean User Experience company (with Janice!) and worked with pioneers in the Lean Startup movement to help companies shift Lean Startup from theory into practice. He can say "thank you“ in more than 20 languages, holds a sixth-degree black belt in Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu, and has published more than 1,600 chocolate reviews on Twitter and lnstagram.
Together, Janice and Jason Fraser have coached hundreds of teams and delivered their workshops and talks to conferences and organizations around the world. Their influence has been felt in startups, government, non-profits, mom-and-pop shops, venture firms, and top business schools including Kellogg, Berkeley HAAS School of Business,Harvard, and Stanford, among others.
