About Burlington
map
Burlington Massachusetts was formed in 1799 and most of its history was based on the agricultural use of the land selling produce to Boston. It also supported itself with small shoe making shops. Burlington missed out on the early railroad expansion thereby limiting its early development so it continued to cure hams and produce milk and fruit and vegetables.

As soon as Route 128 was built this picture changed drastically causing an enormous expansion. Between 1955 and 1965 Burlington was the fastest growing town in the state on Massachusetts. Its population more than tripled as commercial retail and residential development exploded and created the town's current character. Burlington is nestled among Routes 128, Route 3 and 3A as well as Route 62, which makes it easily accessible to Boston and all points north and south.

Burlington is home to many hi-tech companies and industries and is loaded with opportunity for the professional business person. Add to that its flourishing retail sales market and you have a town oozing with positive cash flow. The next time your visiting the Burlington Mall, take a ride along Cambridge Street and discover all of the small businesses and restaurants that the town has to offer.

"Leading Ladies"
Cross-Dressing Comedy Caper: Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig

Two struggling Shakespearean actors are touring Amish country, performing in unappreciative Moose Lodges, when the opportunity of a lifetime arises. The rumor that a rich woman on her deathbed intends to leave her fortune to her sister's long-lost children convinces these two men to become Leading Ladies -- sporting drag in order to fool the family and earn $2 million. But the plan starts going awry when the local reverend gets suspicious and our heroes begin to fall in love ... and just wait until the real nieces arrive in this comedy from playwright Ken Ludwig, whose Lend Me a Tenor was called "one of the two great farces by a living writer" by The New York Times. Catch Leading Ladies' potent blend of comedy, confusion and romantic entanglements at The Park Playhouse in Burlington.

Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) - Boston, MA
Real-time Certification When you leave our class, you are a fully certified CSM§; not just a CSM CANDIDATE which is the case with almost ALL other trainers. Apple Brook Consulting® believes that you should be rewarded for your hard work in class.  This is why we insist that students take the exam at the end of the second day; to ensure that you are able to: log-in, access the CSM exam, and ultimately get your certification in a timely manner.   With other trainers, you may be waiting weeks or months to receive your certificate.  For more information about the CSM Exam, please see:  Becoming A Certified ScrumMaster.   Real Education Units This class provides the attendee with 16 PMI PDUs and 16 Scrum Alliance SEUs.  Upon completion, the student is at liberty to self-report these units under the appropriate category on the PMI and SA websites.  These units will help the student in furthering growing their career and competency in the discipline.  The units will also be required eventually as part of the renewal process with Scrum Alliance.  So don't slack off!! Start NOW!!   Real World Agility® Award Winning Agile Coach and Trainer, Daniel Gullo, shares with you almost 10 years worth of experience, case studies, stories, and examples from his Fortune 100 clients and employers so that you can learn from the successes and failures of other organizations.  Daniel was recently recognized as Most Valued Agile Professional of 2015  by the Agile community!! Here is a short list of the organizations from whom you will learn:  IRS  •  CapitalOne (ING Direct)  •  Paypal  •  ADP  •  Comcast  •  General Motors (GM)  •  GE  •  US Treasury Dept.  •  Federal Reserve Bank  •  PMI GOC (Global Operations Center)  •  NAVTEQ (Nokia)  •  US Postal Service  •  Credit Acceptance Corp  •  T. Rowe Price  •  Microsoft  •  Tableau  •  Starwood Hotels  •  Snap-On  •  VWR  •  Wyeth Pharmaceuticals (Pfizer)  •  Independence Blue Cross  •  EIG  •  Arkieva  •  Bank of America  •  VersionOne  •  and many others...   Industries that will be discussed:  Financial Services  •  Education  •  Biotech  •  Pharmaceuticals  •  Federal Government  •  Automotive  •  Consulting Services  •  eCommerce  •  Internet  •  Software  •  Manufacturing  •  and many others...   Targeted Job / Applicant Search Apple Brook Consulting® maintains an exclusive, invite-only group on LinkedIn for all CSM/CSPO alumni and trusted recruiting connections.  This valuable network of close individuals allows those who KNOW Scrum very well to share their skills with those organizations who have job opportunities for highly skilled individuals.  Daniel openly endorses and supports his students with confidence knowing that through his training, they have been well equipped to assume trusted Scrum Team roles within all organizations.   Tips, Tricks, Events, Articles, and MORE!! As part of our value added service, students automatically receive the Apple Brook Consulting® Monthly Newsletter:  #CoreAGILITY #CoreAGILITY offers tips, tricks, information about upcoming events, tool/product evaluations, interviews, guest articles, and much, MUCH MORE!!  Each edition includes a list of upcoming courses and discount codes from time to time so that you can refer your friends and colleagues.  After a year in circulation, the newsletter has over 3500 subscribers and is still growing stronger every day!!     FREE Coaching Apple Brook Consulting® is committed to helping people succeed well beyond the classroom.  If you have questions about various aspects of Agile, even after the completion of the class, you are encouraged to contact Apple Brook Consulting® and you will receive a reply to your questions from a Certified Scrum Coach® (CSC) with almost 10 years of experience training and coaching organizations on Agile.   Training That Doesn't Suck You don’t like 100s of slides with an instructor narrating them for 2 full days???  Yeah, neither do we!!   After attending many years of sucky training over the years, Apple Brook Consulting® wants to ensure that you LEARN BY DOING!!  We use experiential teaching principles to create an interactive learning experience throughout the class.  The course includes many exercises and activities, which serve to reinforce the concepts; including a true-to-life Scrum simulation.  THIS CLASS IS RIDICULOUSLY FUN!!   Ginsu Steak Knives "That's right!  Act NOW and you will also get a set of Ginsu Steak Knives in a genuine, imitation rosewood presentation box!!" Just kidding!!  I have always wanted to say that line after hearing it for years growing up in the 70s and 80s.  In reality, there are no steak knives here; nor are there any other gimicky little tchotchkes, bangles, baubles, or other junk that you don't really want and just costs you MORE money.  You are looking for a practical learning experience, not a bunch of marketing schwag!! One additional thing you will receive is the opportunity to network with others who are passionate about Scrum and coaching Scrum Teams in the capacity of ScrumMaster!!   WHAT WILL WE LEARN? The Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) Course is an entry level certification course intended for anyone who wishes to learn about the Scrum framework so that they may be informed as their organization moves through an Agile transformation; especially, with Scrum practices. The CSM Course serves several specific purposes: Provide a general overview of the history, values and principles of Agile Product Development Build foundational level knowledge of the Scrum framework Raise capabilities of ScrumMasters by giving them an introduction to critical skills, tips, techniques, etc. upon which they can build Model the behaviors and practices of Scrum while learning about Scrum Briefly introducing and raising awareness of more advanced topics which are outside the scope of the CSM course; e.g. scaling, distributed teams, tools, engineering practices, etc.     WHO SHOULD ATTEND The CSM Course provides knowledge that critical to successful Agile adoption.

WHAT DOES THE CLASS LOOK LIKE?   WHAT ARE STUDENTS SAYING ABOUT DANIEL'S CLASSES? Alfredo Jimenez “Daniel is a very knowledgeable, thorough and creative trainer. His class was engaging and enjoyable, to the point where I didn’t even feel I was in a training class. I’m now a Certified Scrum Master and would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to further their agile knowledge.”     Stephen Skvara “Daniel was the instructor/coach at the CSM class I attended here in PHX, AZ. He not only gave a great presentation of what SCRUM really is, but he was able to instill coaching/teamwork tools to help a SCRUM Master be effective. I would recommend him to any company for consultation as well as a personal career coach as he is an overall very knowledgeable individual.”   Josh Speerstra “Daniel’s laid back mentality and welcoming demeanor was a big plus. He did a very thorough job explaining concepts and leading independent ideas while connecting them back to relevant learning objectives. I highly recommend him!”     Melissa Foster “Daniel’s extensive knowledge of scrum and his ability to engage a group made this training extremely valuable. I would definitely recommend him. He was able to take the course material and apply it to our work environment. It made learning the concepts of Scrum straight forward.”     Visit the full list of recommendations. § You must attain a passing score on the CSM Exam to complete the certification.  Thus, while Apple Brook Consulting® attempts to position you for success and is there to support you through the process of taking the test, actually passing the exam is dependent upon YOUR abilities.  For more information about the CSM Exam, please see Becoming A Certified ScrumMaster.   REFUND POLICY: If registration is cancelled up to two week before the first day of class, 75% of the registration fee will be refunded.
