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.

What Does It Take to Lead ?

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Boston Professional Section presents:

What does it take to lead  in a V.U.C.A World? *

Lessons from Manager-Leaders Who Do It

 * Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous

 

Sponsored by National Grid

Presented by Nance Goldstein, PhD, ACC

RSVP By September 16, 2014

 Event overview

  • Do you wonder how anyone can be a successful manager when there is so much change?
  • Have you wondered about if you have what it takes to move up in management, but you’ve never seen a great manager, so you got no model? 

If you answer yes to either question, join SWE Boston’s conversation with managers who will reveal what the V.U.C.A. world demands of managers.

 Frontline and middle managers are the go-to people for implementing change. Most managers fail even in calm times. Two-thirds of all US employees would rather get another boss than get a pay raise! Add to the “normal” manager job the challenges of motivating people through today’s uncharted territory. 

Join a seasoned engineering manager and a leadership expert talking candidly about how to engage staff through change. They’ll talk about how to motivate people across boundaries (like they don’t work for you!). We’ll discuss how to deal with resistance to change from people who fear what they’ll lose or what it will cost. They’ll tell what prepared them to face the challenges of innovation. And what they wish they had known before!

  You’ll leave the conversation with ideas of how to become a great manager-leader.

  •  You’ll have ideas how to improve your relationship with your own manager. 
  • After a leadership development activity, you’ll have specific steps you can take the next day to develop your own manager-leader capability.

To Say Goodbye - Boston, MA
Thursday, Sept 18th 7pm7:00 p.m.Tickets: $10 (+ fee)
“To Say Goodbye” is a feature-length, independent film shot entirely in Minnesota, using actors who live in and/or are native to the state. More importantly, “To Say Goodbye” is a film that will hopefully save lives. It is a film about suicide.

Nearly 40,000 people per year commit suicide in this country, making it the 10thleading cause of death for Americans.

Sadly, every single one of these deaths could have been prevented.

One of the greatest barriers to reducing deaths is that people simply don’t talk about suicide. As a result, people don’t ask for help—for themselves, or for their friends or loved ones. Our goal for this film is to help change that.

The film's writers/producers, Hamid and Tim Torabpour, are hoping to raise awareness about the effects of suicide on the family, friends and community of the victim. Another objective of the film is to offer hope to people who are at risk of attempting suicide, and to help them understand that there's always a better choice than to end one's life.

Healthcare Analytics - The ROI Conundrum

The United States (US) healthcare industry is evolving its use of healthcare data, including data collection (EMR/EHR), data sharing (via health information exchanges) and data analysis.  There are industry champions pioneering frameworks, such as HIMSS EMRAM, in the hope of accelerating healthcare industry standards in the overlapping world of EMR/EHR and analytics.

Given that EMR/EHR deployments have limited ROI by themselves, but require an investment to allow the healthcare industry to achieve the value and well-documented ROI available from data analytics, where are we today?  Is it true that the healthcare industry must commit, culturally, to become a data-driven culture, incented economically to support optimum health at the lowest cost?  Will healthcare industry CFOs and other C-level executives be capable of managing both quality and cost, understanding the interplay between the two?

Lean & Kanban Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - September
This 1-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Lean and Kanban. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "being Lean" or "adopting Kanban" really means and be ready to start a Kaizen culture change in your organization. This workshop is taught using a combination of lecture, exercises, and interactive sessions. If you already do Kanban 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 Lean approaches - Understanding the values and principles of Lean - Learning how to map your value stream - Learning how to create effective Kanban boards - Learning how to establish a real pull system (and why that is important) - Understanding and being explicit about cadences - Working with explicit policies and why they are important - Learning how to improve through a Kaizen culture - Understanding how to use the Five Focusing Steps to improve value throughput - Learning how to use Classes of Service to establish Service Level Agreements - Understanding how to set effective Work-in-Progress limits and why that is essential PMI credential holders, can earn 7.5 PDUs for attending this class. Why a one-day class? It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Lean and Kanban 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, and a single day commitment, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and improve their ability to deliver on their project. Who can't spare a day for that? As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to jump start a team together so everyone gets on the same page of how to execute honest and authentic Kanban. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1,500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned with others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said about our training and workshops. "Very valuable and enjoyable." Larry Antonuk, Markem-Imaje "Very informative, engaging, and a definite 'go to' for starting or improving agile in your company." Abhinay Pujari, GMO "Well done. The experience of the instructors is great." Mike Dunbar, Conexant "If you are planning to or are employing Agile methodology, this class should be required." Mark Ayasee, VFA Inc. "Excellent class. Covered the fundamentals in a fun interesting manner." Josh Feldman "It's as good for beginners as for someone who is already using agile." Oleg Puzatkin, VFA Inc. "Great crash course in agile methodologies." Jill Nickerson, AlixPartners "Definitely worth every penny + would absolutely recommend!" Colleen Schwartz, AlixPartners 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. The best idea is leave early and target getting to classroom between 8:30-8:45. Dress Code: The dress code for the class is casual. Come comfortable and ready to engage in learning. Lunch: Lunch will be provided. Instructors: The course instructors are from FreeStanding Agility, a team of Agile educators, trainers, and coaches with over 12 years of combined experience, coaching and/or training Agile teams in over 100 different organizations.

Lydian String Quartet: It's About Time (Part 1)
Saturday, November 8, 2014, 8 – 10 p.m.


The program is the first of a two part series, "It's About Time," reflecting the fascination composers have with the exploration of musical time and its effect on the listener.

With Haydn's emotionally complex Quartet in F major, Op. 50 no. 5, "The Dream" as the departure point, the November program offers musical and philosophical contrasts with works by two celebrated American composers, Philip Glass and Elliott Carter. Carter's Quartet no. 1 which was, in his words, his "most extreme adventure into what has been called 'metric modulation,'" while Glass's quartet offers a completely different experience of the flow of time.
