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.

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.
