Agile HR online course

Agile thinking, working and organizing no longer just happens within IT and software development. Other disciplines are also increasingly focusing on agility, in both a strategic and a practical sense. HR is a good example of this: sometimes as an initiator, coach or practitioner of agile organizing. HR has the opportunity to help individuals, teams and leaders in their growth towards greater agility for people and organizations.

What is Agile HR?

The increasing desire to be agile as an organization and as a person has led to a substantial renewal of what we traditionally understand HR to be and is called: Agile HR. Agile HR has four levels: organization, department, teams and instruments. The various traditional instruments that HR uses, need to evolve in order to support these levels in becoming more Agile. In the video below, we explain what Agile HR is and what role HR has in an agile organization.

The online Agile HR training is packed with exercises and real life cases straight from our trainers’ own experiences at various organisations. During this online training you will experience several elements of our ICAgile accredited Agile HR training.

Why Organize Agile?

As coaches, advisers and trainers, we collaborate with organizations on a daily basis. An important part of our work is coaching HR departments and CHROs to innovate and improve their organizations. For example, we’ve helped the largest retail company in the US to redesign their performance management. And we support the Management Teams HR of a large telecom organization in the Netherlands with the management and prioritization of HR projects and activities. We regularly organize meetings around the Agile HR theme, such as the Agile HR Beach Party, and through our Meetup group Agile HR Lab and Linkedin group Agile HR.
