As we adopt Lean | Agile in our organisations we find it affects every person and every team. Human Resources is at the core of that and existing policies and procedures frequently come under scrutiny.
In this 2-day highly interactive course we will introduce you to Lean | Agile People Operations and discuss people solutions from both strategic and consultative perspectives. This will help you understand the techniques, philosophies, and challenges of Human Resources in modern organizations.
Your organizational experiences will be used as the foundation for identifying relevant issues and applying business lessons throughout the program.
Adventures with Agile is very privileged to have Fabiola flying here from New York to talk about Agile HR with us.
“HR is at a crossroad. We have those who are comfortable and change resistant and we have the others: the challengers, the rebels, the warriors who are brave enough to embrace Lean | Agile and completely reshape the belief and approach to Human Resources. They will be the ones to create people solutions fit for the demands and challenges of 21st century agile organizations.”
