Workout in Agile HR

An agile approach makes it possible to adapt to what most businesses today need to work with to keep up the motivation, creativity and innovation capabilities of employees. HR is no exception but needs to learn how agile principles, tools and methods can help them better support the business in areas such as employee engagement, recruitment, goal- and performance management, competence development, compensation & benefits, organizational development and leadership.

We have picked the best agile tools and methods (eg Kanban, OKR:s, SCRUM and Merit money) and applied them to how HR, leaders and business teams can work in new and improved ways to maximize value and employee engagement. If you recognize yourself in any of the following statements, this is a workshop for you:

  • The core business of your company is using agile today and there is a mismatch between how HR and / or leadership work and the agile way of working in the team.
  • You, as HR Manager / Specialist / Consultant / Manager or Team member, want advice and practical tools to help you to create more value towards business goals using agile principles and practices.
  • You work today in specialized HR roles and want concrete tools and tips for working more together with joint and coordinated deliveries to the business.
  • Leadership in your organization is not keeping up with the fast pace of change and you need to learn how to support a more modern mindset in how managers should work to make their employees perform better and feel more committed and happy.
