WHAT is this training all about?

How do performance management, recruitment, learning and development change, and what about compensation and benefits and the way we perform employee engagement surveys? What are the specific skills that we need, to run an agile transformation from a people’s perspective? And is there still a need to do succession planning in the future?

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 an agile HR case from setting goals and developing user stories for HR to implementing sprint planning and monitoring the sprint using Kanban.

This training results in a certification in Agile Talent (ICP-TAL) by ICAgile. To certify you have to do an exercise in which you describe an Agile transition roadmap, based on the provided models. You can do this for your own organization (can be a virtual assignment, with assumptions) or  you can use our standard business case.

During the training we cover
  • Introduction to the agile approach and how it is related to Lean and systems thinking. 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? How should recruitment, performance evaluations and salary discussions look like?
  • What concrete examples are there? How have others done? What works?
  • How can you use agile techniques like Scrum and Kanban for HR?
