About Waltham
map
Waltham Massachusetts was founded in eastern Massachusetts in 1636 and incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884. The Charles River cuts a path through the southern section of Waltham and has been used throughout its history for transportation and industry. Waltham is probably most historically famous for the Waltham Watch Factory that made its home on the banks of the Charles and was a pioneer company of the industrial revolution.

The Charles River has given way to Route 128, the main economic center of the city and has the second largest office market in the greater Boston area. Waltham has a diverse housing market with multi-family houses near the downtown section and single family neighborhoods along its borders.

Waltham is the home for higher education with two of the most prestigious colleges in the east - Bentley College and Brandeis University. The downtown section of Waltham hosts many diversified restaurants guaranteed to satisfy any craving or palette along with many retail establishments.

With all of these amenities and its convenient location just off Route 128 and its public transportation systems which include the commuter rail - Waltham is an especially pleasant place to live or work.

Building Stakeholder Engagement Through Your Meetings
Engaging multiple stakeholders can be a critical aspect of the success of many initiatives. You may need the input and support of decision-makers, funders, doers, influencers or recipients to succeed. How can you design meetings that enable all points of view to be shared respectfully and productively while keeping the discussion on track and on time? In this workshop we will explore the practices and tools of a structural approach to the design of meetings that build stakeholder engagement.  A structural approach relies less on facilitating desired behavior and more on creating a structure that naturally enables an effective exchange of ideas and decisions.  The techniques of a structural approach can be used with any size group, from a small team to a whole community.   Takeaways: A clearer view of the (often unseen) structure of meetings and how to use structure to make them more productive. Techniques for effective engagement of any size group. Leave with ideas for the design of an upcoming meeting on an important initiative. Rick Lent has spent the last 20 years identifying structures for more effective meetings and coaching leaders in their use. He facilitates meetings around the world in business, non-profit organizations and communities. Some of the organizations with which he has worked include the World Food Programme, InterAction, UNICEF, ArchstoneSmith, Logitech, the WK Kellogg Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. He has also worked with dozens of local civic, religious and nonprofit groups.   Rick delivers workshops and presentations on a structural approach to better meetings and shares his perspective on meetings on his blog at www.meetingforresults.com. His new book, Leading Great Meetings: How to Structure Yours for Success is designed to help leaders adopt structures that make their meetings naturally more productive.  He received his Ph.D. from Syracuse University in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation and continued his studies in organizational learning and development.

If you registered for a class, need to cancel, and cannot transfer the ticket to another person, the following policies will be in effect: 1. If you notify us in advance of 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL be eligible for a refund for the full price of the class OR you can ask to be moved to a future class date at no extra cost. Refunds will be processed immediately, but may take 7-10 days to show on your credit card statement depending on your card provider's policy. 2. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL NOT be eligible for a refund of the full price of the class and you will need to pay a $72.40 rescheduling fee to be moved to a future class date.

We are simply passing this cost on to the attendee should the condition apply. 3. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel and do not want to reschedule, you do not need to pay the rescheduling fee, but you do forfeit the price of the class.

The Spirit of Christmas Past: Four Centuries of Christmas in New England
The Spirit of Christmas Past: Four Centuries of Christmas in New England

Tuesday, December 1, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Lyman Estate, 185 Lyman Street, Waltham, Mass.

For many people today, Christmas is the most important holiday of the year. But many of the customs that we take for granted as part of today's holiday festivities and religious celebrations are actually a product of more recent history. This illustrated lecture traces the development of the celebration of Christmas, from when it was outlawed in seventeenth-century New England through the beginning of the twentieth century, when all the trappings of a traditional Christmas were in place.

Kenneth C. Turino, manager of community engagement and exhibitions at Historic New England, tells the story of how Christmas was transformed from a rowdy celebration to a family-centered event. Learn how Christmas trees became popular, halls were decked, and Santa Claus came to town. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - November
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you. Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers: - Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches - Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP - Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum - Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog - Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories - Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD) - Planning and tracking releases and sprints - Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups - Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques - Understanding team velocity and role metrics - Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives Why a one-day class? It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises. Who should attend? With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that. As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said.

Don't miss it!" - Richard Kasperowski, Nokia Class Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Class Day Travel Trip: Traffic on I-95/128 is a wildcard and can be "unpleasant" before class time.
