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.

 Scrumban for Scrum Teams

"75% of organizations using Scrum will not succeed in getting the benefits they hope from it." 
-- Ken Schwaber (co-creator of Scrum)

Scrum is an incredible success, yet...

Many organizations change Scrum instead of the problem when a need for change is revealed.

Organizations tend to focus on improving the wrong things because systemic issues aren't readily identified.

The challenges Scrum teams face will vary, and their ability to overcome them often have little to do with Scrum itself (or how well / poorly teams practice it).

Scrumban can help.  Scrumban is the application of flow-based principles (kanban systems) or the layering of the Kanban Method within a Scrum context. 

During this kickstart, we highlight how the Scrumban framework helps teams and organizations avoid becoming part of the "75%."What to Expect

The Kanban / Scrumban frameworks are designed to deliver benefits at any level of adoption, emphasizing improved understanding over immediate change.  Moreover, teams and organizations are free to improve over time at a pace best suited to their own needs. 

This half-day workshop arms participants with all they need to know in order to begin using Kanban in their environments right away.  Here's a quick overview of what you'll come away with:

  • A Basic Mastery of Core Lean / Kanban Principles & Practices 
  • Orientation to New Metrics and How to Use them to Improve Planning and Drive Improvement
  • A Preliminary Analysis of Your Organization's / Teams Sources of Demand (work requested) and Dissatisfaction (business outcomes that aren't being met)
  • The Value Stream Mapping of your Current Work Process
  • Your Initial Kanban Board Design for Visualizing Work & Measuring Performance (created using ScrumDo.com -- an on-line project management and collaboration tool)
  • A three-month Gold Level Subscription to ScrumDo.com (a $270 value)
  • Follow-up Remote Coaching & Mentoring (limited)

This kickstart program is the perfect solution for quickly ramping up new teams or employees for Kanban / Scrumban practices.Both Practical & Fun!

This half-day kick start is highly interactive, with key learnings emphasized through group exercises.  Participants also get to experience the framework's simplicity and power for themselves through simulated game play (using the GetScrumban game -- our on-line, educational game that walks users through some typical scenarios and evolutions in thinking).How is This Kick Start Different From Other Training?

The combination of game simulation with contemporaneous coaching / instruction allows participants to gain an intuitive understanding and feel of how the Kanban / Scrumban framework can be adjusted to work within their own environments.  Benefit from our instructors' extensive experience helping small teams become masters of their domain, and helping large organizations use Kanban / Scrumban to scale Agile more effectively (10,000+ IT Professionals).  Participants will learn about some of the common traps and pitfalls around:

  • Time-boxed vs. Flow-based projects
  • Pull principles & the Theory of Constraints
  • Visualizing workflow effectively (the way we work)
  • Visualizing policies (how we work)
  • Managing shifting priorities
  • Effectively dealing with interrupt work and multi-tasking
  • Manging flow
  • Balancing demand and capacity
  • Managing external dependencies
  • And more...

 Instructors / Mentors

This kickstart will be led by the only Lean Kanban University Accredited Trainer in the Boston area -- Ajay Reddy.  Ajay started his professional career as a software engineer, and spent many years leading development teams and larger IT functions. He now spends the majority of his time helping technology organizations improve performance by successfully adopting agile practices.

Ajay is founder and Chief Process Officer of Code Genesys (a Boston-based IT Solutions company), a managing partner of ScrumDo.com (a cloud-based project management tool for Scrum teams), and a former Associate with David J. Anderson & Associates (the acknowledged "father" of the Kanban Method).  His book on Scrumban is slated to be published later this summer / fall.

Jack Speranza leads operations for Code Genesys and contributes to operations at ScrumDo. He began his foray into the world of software development a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away when he helped design and implement a custom practice management system for his law firm. Jack's implemented Kanban as a management framework across non-IT operations, and enjoys contributing to the creation of high-performing organizations in this fashion. Jack teaches the Entrepreneurship Capstone at Clark University, and has served on the University’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program Board of Advisors for the past several years.
