About Waltham
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.

Strategies To Minimize Risk by The CFO RoundTable Boston

Strategies To Minimize Risk
presented by The CFO RoundTable Boston
Wednesday Nov, 12 2014 @ 7:15am - 9:45am
Bentley University's LaCava Center

The term “Risk Management” opens up a can of worms.  However, one needs to break the term down into multiple parts and begin more thoroughly defining and understanding the concepts within. 

Join The CFO RoundTable Boston on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, as we present "Strategies To Minimize Risk."  We will bring together:

  • An experienced CFO who has a story to tell
  • A Director from NorthStar to provide insight into the D&O world
  • A Supervisory Agent from the FBI to help sort out the do’s, don’ts and “gotchas” for the FCPA, and 
  • The Head of Internal Audit and Accreditations from Radius to help define best practices. 

You will walk away from this program with some absolutes to implement immediately, considerations for “what ifs” to prevent your picture from being displayed on the cover of CFO magazine or in the post office for the wrong reasons, and some thoughts to keep in mind for future reference and company growth.

Learning Objectives

From this session, you will learn:

  • Learn how to develop a strong Risk Management culture, fully understand your key strategic risks, and formulate effective strategies to manage these
  • How, as a CFO, to put yourself in the best possible position to secure coverage when working with your broker/carriers (how the process works and how to get the most out of the process)
  • Highlights on key coverage areas relevant to membership, with a focus on D&O Liability (the “bones” of a proper insurance program)
  • Understand how the FBI views FCPA, and its potential effects on both private and publicly-held companies

The Good Doctor
Thursday, November 20, 2014, 8 – 11 p.m.

This Broadway hit is a composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a fiesty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more perplexed than ever. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending.

"The Quantum and the Continuum: Einstein's dichotomous legacies"

Abstract: This talk begins with a summary of some of Einstein's seminal contributions in the quantum domain, like Brownian motion and the Light Quantum Hypothesis, as well as on the spacetime continuum enshrined in the theories of special and general relativity. We then attempt to point to a possible dichotomy in his thinking about these two apparently disparate aspects of physics, which must have been noticed by him, but was not much discussed by him in the public domain. One may speculate that this may have had something to do with his well-known distaste for the probability interpretation of quantum mechanics as a fundamental interpretation. We argue that theorems ensuing from Einstein's general relativity theory itself contain the seeds of a dramatic modification of our ideas of the Einsteinian spacetime continuum, thus underlining the dichotomy even more strongly. We then survey one modern attempt to resolve the dichotomy, at least partly, by bringing into the spacetime continuum, aspects of quantum mechanics with its underlying statistical interpretation, an approach which Einstein may not have thoroughly enjoyed, but which seems to work so far, with good prospects for the future.

Kanban / Scrumban Kickstart for Software Development & IT Ops Teams

Kanban / Scrumban?

  • Simple & Easy - Starts with What You're Already Doing and Makes Your Practices More Effective
  • Improved Focus & Flexibility
  • Techniques for Reducing Wasted Time & Work
  • More Reliable Forecasting & Planning Capabilities
  • Increased Efficiency
  • More Sustainable Over Time
Kanban for Software Development & IT Operations

Kanban is a powerful framework that enables you to take control of your existing way of working and begin eliminating your biggest headaches.  It does this by adding enhanced visualization techniques and other tools to our existing management process that improve shared understandings and expose the systemic forces that influence outcomes.

Though simple to use, lurking beneath Kanban's surface is a wide array of scientifically-based methods and techniques that supercharge its basic capabilities for those who wish to harness more from the framework.
 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).



Boston Limited WIP Society

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

 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.

One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they've ever felt.SPRING AWAKENINGexplores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children.SPRING AWAKENINGcelebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.
