Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

1914-1918: The War Within the War, Lecture by Adam Hochschild
Monday, October 13, 2014, 3:30 – 5 p.m.

As we mark the centenary of the Great War, this epochal event is usually remembered as a bloody conflict between rival alliances of nations. But there was another struggle within most of those countries: between people who regarded the war as a noble and necessary crusade, and a brave minority who felt it was tragic madness and who refused to fight. Writer Adam Hochschild describes this battle in an illustrated talk, focusing on the country where that tension was sharpest, Great Britain.

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. 

Agenda

5:15-6:00              Dinner

6:00-6:20              National Grid and SWE Introduction

Kanban / Scrumban Kickstart for Software Development & IT Ops Teams

Why
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).

Sponsors

 


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 LKU Accredited Kanban 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.

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.

Intelligent Swarming Insights: One Day Workshop - Waltham, Mass

Swarming improves our ability to create relevant skills. Skills development enables an increase in:

  • Customer loyalty
  • Employee loyalty
  • Operational efficiency


The tiered support model of the past 35 years is giving way to a new structure and process: a better way to align people with work.

Intelligent swarming is a collaboration-based model that seeks to get the person, or people, most likely to be able to solve an issue working on that issue on the first touch.

The benefits of collaboration are well understood by support staff; they do it quite naturally. And, they often collaborate in spite of the traditional tiered support model and escalation processes that we have imposed on them. What if we created processes and structures that enabled collaboration? Early adopters of swarming are reporting compelling benefits including faster skills development, improved employee morale, and increased customer satisfaction.

Intelligent Swarming is not a new topic for the Consortium for Service Innovation. But in the past few years, a handful of member companies have implemented the swarming concepts, albeit in very different ways, but all with great success.

This one-day Intelligent Swarming Insights workshop provides:

  • An explanation of the principles
  • A summary of case studies, benefits and lessons learned from the early adopters
  • Details on the qualification criteria: swarming is not for everybody
  • Insight to the critical key enablers
  • 7 scenarios to consider in designing the process
  • Tool functionality and integration requirements
