Strategies for Healthcare Costs

MNN is pleased to announce the topic of its 2011 Regional Meetings: “Healthwise: Strategies for Your Health Care Costs.” The 2011 regional meetings will focus on the subject the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network hears most about from its members: the rising cost of health care. Attendees will learn how to navigate the current health care system and about existing subsidies, as well as how they can play a role in efforts to control mounting costs.

To aid nonprofit leaders and employees in navigating the current health insurance market, The Health Connector will present a brief overview of health insurance requirements followed by information about benefit design and subsidies.

Health Care for All will share information about efforts in the Massachusetts Legislature to address health care costs through payment reform. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences with their legislators of trying to meet the challenge of rising health care costs, and learn from the legislators about the status of this issue and the role that attendees can play in moving this issue forward in the Legislature.

YOU MUST ATTEND ALL 5 DAYS including evening practices, to get the full benefit for yourself and to be fair to your fellow colleagues as the skills in the class build on one another.

About the Retreat Center

The Essex Retreat Center's property is set in a beautiful, peaceful place and is tucked amidst 18 acres of white pines and oaks, less than a mile from the ocean and surrounded by 250 acres of conservation land. Menus are healthy, wholesome and abundant meals with vegetarian options. All meals are prepared by our Executive chef and professional food service staff.

While we feel you will be pleased with the accommodations, we want to make sure that you know this is a rustic retreat center - not a spa. A place to think and breathe in nature, eat wholesome food, and a chance to get to know your fellow students by sharing two (or three) to a room and three to a bathroom. A limited number of Sunday arrivals and single rooms are available for an additional fee. Contact Meg for details. Who Would Benefit from the Bootcamp

  • ScrumMasters, Agile Project Managers or Iteration Managers well versed in the agile basics and who have experienced an agile team. You must have actual experience to benefit from the bootcamp because we use your real life experiences throughout. We suggest at least 6 months’ experience.
  • Experienced ScrumMasters, Agile Project Managers or Iteration Managers who have had years of experience.
  • Agile Coaches who want increased facilitation and coaching skills and the results they can provide.
  • Any experienced agilist interested in bringing more rigor and structure to their facilitation of Agile ceremonies and other collaborative events.
  • Any experienced agilist who wants to help people and teams achieve the changes it takes to use agile well.

 

The Agile Facilitator  You asked for it, we listened. We are SO excited to be offering a facilitation class that will help you professionally facilitate the Agile practices for your teams. We partnered with two great facilitators – Leslie Stein and David Chilcott – to design a course that fulfills industry requirements for becoming a qualified Agile Team Facilitator. This two-day course requires day and evening class time to cover what you need and allow you plenty of time to practice and get feedback. Here’s the full course description.

Coaching Agile Teams To meet the full requirements of a comprehensive Agile coaching curriculum, we expanded our flagship Coaching Agile Teams course to 3 days. We offered the 3-day version, and students raved: don’t shortchange us with only 2-days! Finally, we can say this is a truly comprehensive course for Agile coaches. Here’s the full course description.Certifications

  • The Bootcamp is accredited by the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) as fulfilling all Learning Objectives in the Team Facilitation & Agile Coaching track.  After successful completion of the Bootcamp, you can apply for ICAgile Professional continuing education certifications in Team Facilitation and/or Agile Coaching, provided you meet ICAgile's prerequisites. Learn more at ICAgile.
  • The Bootcamp is also approved by the Scrum Alliance and yields 37 SEUs toward your Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) or to support your existing Scrum Alliance certifications, such as the CSM. Learn more at the Scrum Alliance.
  • Any learning in Agile is typically acceptable to the Project Management Institute as continuing education. The Bootcamp yields 37 PDUs that you can claim toward your PMI-ACP or to support your existing PMI certifications, such as the PMP. Learn more at the PMI.
