Develop yourself in Agile HR
March 17-18, 2020
Develop yourself in Agile HR and make the shift from managing human resources towards leading and supporting resourceful humans.
In this fast changing world, following agile principles enables organisations to innovate and quickly meet rapidly changing customer needs.
Since people are an integral part of the journey towards business agility, more and more organizations are applying an agile mindset to HR and people development by realising how critical that role is for the journey’s success.
Embarking on this journey will raise a lot of questions:
How does a people based strategy and operations need to change when working in a company embracing the agile value structure?
How can HR support an agile organizational transformation?
How can we apply agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability and growth?
How can we create agile-friendly structures for salaries and benefits?
Job Roles – are they needed in the future?
What role does employee engagement and motivation play?
How can we acquire the “right” people to support the strategic growth of the organization?
What are the specific skills that we need to use to run an agile transformation from a people perspective?
Regardless of whether you are an agile coach, a line manager or an HR professional, you will need to understand how a people based strategy and people based operations need to change when working in a company embracing the agile value structure:
How does Performance Management, Recruitment, Learning and Development, Compensation and Benefits and the way we perform Employee Engagement Surveys change?
What are the specific skills that we need to run an agile transformation from a people perspective?
Is there still a need for Succession Planning in the future
During the training course we cover
- Introduction to the agile approach and why work with agility?
- What characterizes the agile mindset and how to change the traditional HR processes when we are working with agile values?
- How should HR adapt work to create maximum value in an agile organization?
- What should recruitment, performance evaluations, and salary discussions look like?
- What concrete examples are there? How have others achieved this transformation? What works across contexts?
- How can you use agile techniques like Scrum and Kanban for HR?
HR’s role in an Agile organization Learning Outcomes
Participants will gain knowledge about:
How HR can support an agile organizational transformation: Assess the current organizational structure and design a new structure that enables business agility, maximizes communication and collaboration within and among teams and enables the flow of value.
Goal setting and performance management in a new way: Appraise current performance management practices and identify ways of bringing Agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability and growth.
Salaries and benefits for an agile organization: Describe and contrast traditional incentive structures with Agile-friendly structures, discuss the pros and cons of each approach and explain how they could apply them to their own environment.
Job Roles – are they needed in the future? Develop an organizational action plan for role modeling an Agile mindset and to build new skills that will enable cross-functional teams.
Employee engagement in an agile manner: Recommend different motivational tools to be applied in a context and describe how the traditional employee engagement survey is changing.
Talent acquisition and the candidate experience: Design a sourcing strategy that can be used to find and acquire the “right” people to support the strategic growth of the organization by taking values, culture, diversity and collaboration into the hiring decision.
Agile learning: Suggest ways to enable and support a learning mindset in a team, supporting the shift from a focus on deficiencies to a focus on the development of new skills and capabilities.
Onboarding practices for agile companies: Design an onboarding experience that enables new employees to become a part of the organization rapidly and smoothly.
Why the agile mindset is HRs responsibility: Design the talent/people elements needed to help support an Agile transition in an organization and explain how different contexts can influence the approach to be taken.
The needed changes in the HR core function: Relate how the need for business agility affects the HR function and organization and how it impacts HR team members’ roles and behaviors.
Practical tools, templates and exercises for HR and managers: How an HR department can work with agile tools and methods, for example with Kanban, Sprints, Scrum and Retrospectives.
How will we explore the above topics
The training places great emphasis on practical examples and we will present a series of tools that you will be able to use when getting started on your own agile HR initiative. We take you through the agile HR journey from setting goals and developing user stories for HR to implementing sprint planning and monitoring the sprint using Kanban.
Every moment in our workshop - from exercises and games, from discussions to coffee breaks is an opportunity to share, learn and network – and many participants say that the diverse groups we have in these training courses lead to great cross-functional, beneficial discussions.
During the training, you get the book Agile People – A Radical Approach for HR and Managers (That Leads to Motivated Employees), by author Pia-Maria Thorén. She is the owner of Agile People, and an inspiration to Agile HR instructors globally.
Participants who successfully complete the 2-day workshop and post-workshop assignment will receive the ICAgile Certified Professional certification – Agile Talent (ICP-TAL).
