Agile People HR
In this course, we are exploring HRs new role in an Agile organization!
Today the most progressive companies have changed the HR role to a more coaching role serving all the people, not just management. Although this changed view of the formal HR role is still not fully mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, ways of working (like Scrum), and people practices that allow a truly Agile culture to thrive.
You will leave this experience having gained both knowledge and practical skills to bring forward new ways of working and being that place HR in a leading position to creating lasting change, engagement, and a truly empowered workplace.
The program is made up of 10 topics that we will cover over 10 intensive online sessions - beginning 1 Nov and ending on 15 Nov - 0900 - 1100 CET.

Agile People HR
Session H1: How HR's role is changing when we need to increase Business Agility
Design the talent/people elements needed to help support an Agile transition in an organisation and explain how different contexts can influence the approach to be taken. Job titles, competency profiles, titles, career, succession - how do we do it in an agile organisation? User stories for HR and a T-shaped HR-person. Employee Journey mapping - pain points. Examples and cases.
Session H2: How HR can use tools and practices from Agile.
Using Scrum, Kanban, Value Stream Mapping, and OKRs for HR is not so different from using it for Software development. What are examples, and how can you design talent/people processes using the agile ways of working? User stories for HR - what do they look like? Examples and cases of Agile HR in reality.
Session H3: Goals and Performance Management and Compensation and Benefits
Appraise current performance management practices and identify ways of bringing Agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability, and growth. 95/5 Exercise. Describe and contrast traditional incentive structures with Agile-friendly structures, discuss the pros and cons of each approach, and explain how you could apply them to your own environment.
Session H4: Talent Acquisition and onboarding
Design a sourcing strategy that can be used to find and acquire the "right" people to support the strategic growth of the organisation taking values, culture, diversity, and collaboration into the hiring decision. Design an onboarding experience that enables new employees to become a part of the organisation rapidly and smoothly.
Session H5: Learning and Development and Employee Engagement
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. Recommend different motivational tools to be applied in a context and describe how the traditional employee engagement survey is changing.

This course is available online. Prior to our first session, you will receive access to the Agile People Learning Management System where you will access all of the course content, workbooks, and supporting materials.
We are working with different virtual tools. We will provide you guided information to access all of the various tools prior to our first session as well as on-going throughout the experience.
There will be some work to be done after every session, so this class will need your full attention during these intensive days. The certification assignment can be accomplished in the time between the sessions so that you will be ready on the day of the last session. But in this intense tempo, we recommend that you do the assignment after the training has stopped.
