Agile People Fundamentals [Online]


If you are an Agile Coach, HR Professional or are in a Leadership role, you need to understand how people strategy and people operations need to change when working in a company that embraces the agile value structure.

The Agile People Fundamentals covers 3 Perspectives that every HR professional or Leader needs to be aware of:

Individual Perspective [YOU]

  • Knowing yourself and why you do what you do
  • The Reiss Motivation Profile (RMP) shows your basic needs and motives and contributes to a better understanding of yourself and your leadership; and why you do what you do
  • Helping others find their perfect place in the organisation keeping their personality and situation into account

Team Perspective [WE IN OUR TEAM]

  • How to increase the pace from immature to mature high-performing teams, using skills for communication and conflict resolution
  • How to grow and develop teams to be independent and empowered to make their own decisions, for example, about their contribution to the organisations goals

Organisational Perspective [ALL OF US]

  • How to balance an agile culture with an agile structure by providing enough support for emerging strategies where all people are involved in setting the direction
  • How to work to change behaviours - accomplishing an agile mindset and culture through removing limiting structures
  • Create a Learning organisation where it's ok to make mistakes and learn from them

Program Content

Agile People Fundamentals

Session F1: Introduction to Agile People and important principles/tools

The foundation of Agile People's' mindset is about the principles, values, methods, and tools that we need to start using to release competence and innovation – and what we stop doing. We discuss your challenges and certification assignment.

Session F2: Psychological safety as a foundation for a learning organization

The importance of an approach that is permeated by security and confidence to increase profitability and innovation – to increase creativity through a culture where it is ok to fail and try again. We play "The Psychological Safety Game" to facilitate dialogue about difficult topics

Session F3: Emerging strategies, structures, and goals

Emerging strategies instead of long-term planning, new ways of working with strategy, budgets, goals, performance processes, and rewards. Using value stream mapping to optimize flows in a system instead of working with resource optimization and sub-optimization of departments. Mindset Slider exercise. WoWs to be used: Beyond Budgeting, OKRs, Impact Mapping, VSM, etc.

Session F4: Building conditions for agile culture

Creating conditions for a fantastic culture where people can perform at their optimal level with a sense of being supported and secure. The gap between structures and culture/values. Structure – Culture Misfit Role Play. The importance of country culture for an Agile transformation.

Session F5: The learning Organization as Strategy and the future role of HR and managers

Boundary Spanning and the Buddy System to increase cross-border collaboration and increase the opportunity to create a fantastic organization together. Tips and examples for the change journey and how HR and managers need to change their role to support it.

Course leaders

Your course leaders and facilitators will be:

Sarika Kharbanda and Hegi Gudmundsson

Online Delivery

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.
