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 Your High Performing Finance Team by The Controllers RoundTable Boston


Building Your High Performing Finance Team
presented by The Controllers RoundTable 
Wednesday Oct 15, 2014 @ 7:15am - 9:45am
Bentley University's LaCava Center

Program Description

In this time of change, expectations continuously rise on Finance’s role in the organization. We are expected to act as strategic business partner, and “closing the books” remains a thing of the past. The CFO does not have to go it alone if they can build a strong team with which to forge forward. We are aiming to provide Controllers, who are looking to take that next step to CFO, with tangible real-life examples and lessons-learned to consider when growing their teams to accommodate this new criteria.

This panel will focus on recruiting, maintaining, and motivating teams, and will provide perspective you will ultimately need in order to foster an overall high performance culture across Finance.

Join The Controllers RoundTable Boston on Wednesday, October 15, 2015, as we present “Building Your Highest Performing Finance Team,” where our panel of experts will discuss first hand their past experience and lessons-learned, advice, as well as their current experience in team building success.  

Learning Objectives

Hiring & Recruiting the Team 

  • Evaluating the key intangibles  and understanding how to better structure the interview process such that you can effectively evaluate these intangibles in such a short window
  • Securing quality candidates
  • Gaging trust


Developing & Growing the Team

  • Truly investing in employees’ development
  • Offering frequent opportunities to get the team exposure “above their head” to accelerate growth

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - September
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. "The class was one of the most engaging and cost-effective classes I've taken in 25+ years of work." - Irwin Schreiman, PerkinElmer "WOW!" - Chuck Miksis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Awesome Class!" - Stanley Ivas "Best in Boston to learn Agile/Scrum." - Kanda Alagappan "I can use these principles & practices to take charge of my day today." - Heather Mardis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "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 "It's a great introductory class for understanding the fundamentals of Scrum." - Chandra Kollipara, BA Insight "Definitely worth every penny + would absolutely recommend!" - Colleen Schwartz, AlixPartners "Agile ASAP is a great one day introduction to Agile and Scrum. The teachers are among the best in the world. I brought my entire team with me, and they left excited and ready to bring it to work the next day. I will send more teams to this class, and I'll bring the teachers into my company for on-site training. 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. 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: A box 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.

Brandeis Theater Company: Dead Man's Cell Phone
Thursday, October 9, 2014, 8 – 11 p.m.

Dead Man's Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Adrianne Krstansky

Jean, unmarried and approaching 40, sits in a cafe as a man's cell phone rings. And rings. And continues to ring. Irritated, Jean approaches the wonder of the phone and discovers he has quietly died in the cafe. She decides to keep his phone and begins answering his calls, keeping him alive in a strange yet significant way. As she takes messages from the dead man's colleagues, friends, family members and even his mistress, she finds herself involved in his life and afterlife in hilarious and shocking ways. This play, which had its New York City premiere at Playwrights Horizons, is a moving and funny exploration of how, in the midst of our fragile lives, technology can both unite and isolate us, especially in our quest for true love.

The Trance in the Dance... A world of dream state where the music is the dreamer and you are the dream. Tarab dance is described as being in an ecstatic or trance like state for both the artist and the audience. We have all been touched by a performance that moves us - unaware of the means of transporting us to the artist's universe/dimension. A genuine loosing of consciousness to the music - focused so intently that you are in a trance and entranced.... as an audience member or the artist. A dancer's presence of true, pure emotion takes us on that journey being taken beyond words to pure emotion in motion. Achieving a trance like state are magical, mystical times when you are no longer aware of 'how' or 'what' you are doing but letting the movements resonate within yourself and feel the stillness, the silence, the spirit moving within, the energy moving throughout, the space between the notes... Using guided dance meditation and breathing techniques we develop sense of self, surrendering to the music by letting go and letting in, to feel every fiber of being moved within the music, to be present in the moment without judgement that leads to the genuine trance of the dance.

NEDG BIOCOMPATIBILITY ROUND TABLE

This message is being sent as a benefit of your ASQ Biomedical Division affiliation and/or attendance at NEDG functions

 

BIOCOMPATIBILITY ROUND TABLE

Practical Applications and Issues

 

For example … How does one know:

 

  • ? ISO 10993-1… EN ISO version? FDA’s version? AAMI/ISO version?
  • ? How do regulators (FDA, CE, others) determine if your testing is adequate?
  • ? When do you NOT need to test for biocompatibility?
  • ? To evaluate Materials? Finished Devices? pre/post sterilization or aging?
  • ? How to choose a lab for testing? … and how to prevent pitfalls?
  • ? If a protocol and test plan are needed?
  • ? When GLP testing (vs. non-GLP testing) is required? recommended?
  • ? How/when to use existing data?

The meeting will begin with an overview of practices and challenges in biocompatibility assessment.  On the surface it sounds simple: “call a test lab and they tell you what to do”, or “just use the table in ISO 10993-1”. But it is not … success is usually assumed and errors have resulted in painful effects on patients, companies, projects and careersYou will be an active participant in a facilitated discussion and come prepared to share your experiences, successes, and concerns. 

This opportunity to learn and share information will take place on October 23, 2014 at the Waltham Woods Conference Center, 860 Winter St. Waltham, MA 02451.   GPS will not get you there; use: http://www.conferencecenteratwalthamwoods.com/location

Bentley University's LaCava Center

Program Description

The CFO role has increasingly expanded from overseeing all finance activities to owning the big picture and driving the company’s growth and strategic direction.  The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for CFOs/Sr. Finance to hear first-hand from internal partners to better understand their perspective, needs and pain points, and to share ways that their organization has worked collaboratively with the CFO  to build value.  (For example, in BD, CFO may review business opportunities from the financial and general business viewpoints to determine viability of potential business and product strategies and to  balance meeting immediate needs, i.e. closing the deal, with the long term goals).

Learning Objectives

  • Develop insight into our partners and stakeholders challenges and priorities
  • Better understand how Finance can be a more effective business partner who is more aligned with the business to deliver value to the company
  • Consider the characteristics that make for a successful strategic Finance partner
  • Examine the role of Finance in business strategy
  • Discuss how to build stronger connections within the company to propel growth
  • Discuss how to educate other executive team members so that they understand and value Finance’s broader role
  • Discuss the CFO’s challenges with companies at different stages and how they can be prepared to grow and evolve with the company
