Agile People HR Overview 

Today the most progressive companies have changed the formal management role to a more servant leadership rolerealizing that people are most productive, creative and happy when they have personal control over their own lives and the ability to be leaders of their destiny, private or work-related. In these organizations, everybody is expected to be a leader, so there is paradoxical, a lot more leadership there.

Although the changed view on leaders and of the formal HR manager role is far from mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, replacing budgets with forecasts and dynamic resource allocation, to create the best possible value. The role of managers is changing rapidly and also, the role of HR is under tremendous change, from focusing mainly on policies and processes to understanding that the future for HR lies in creating conditions for people to perform and be happy. By removing impediments, we can instead maximize engagement and employee satisfaction that will fuel speed and adaptability in a common, strategic direction.

The question is, where do managers and HR go from here? What will become of them, when everybody seems to be able to lead themselves? Will, they slowly become obsolete when information and knowledge are transparent for everybody and power is not anymore in the hands of a few "talents" who were promoted because they were seen as "HIPOs" in a world where people were judged in a yearly performance review? Or is there an alternative future role that would be the natural step when leaving the process-oriented and transactional leadership style in favor of ways of working more suitable for a complex reality?

Regardless if you are an agile coach, a line manager or an HR professional, you need to understand how people strategy and people operations need to change when working in a company embracing the agile value structure. 

During the Agile People HR training we cover 3 perspectives:

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 finding their perfect place in the organization taking 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 organization's goals or their salaries

Organizational perspective (ALL OF US)

  • How to balance an agile culture with an agile structure, providing enough support for emerging strategies where all people are involved in setting the direction (via OKRs or other kinds of relative targets)
  • How to work to change behaviors – accomplishing an agile mindset and culture through removing limiting structures (budgets linked to fixed performance targets and rewards)
  • Create a Learning organization where it's ok to make mistakes and learn from them (requires a platform of Psychological Safety)

Workshop program

Workshop program Session 1-7: Agile People HR

Session 1: How HRs role is changing when we need to increase Business Agility 
Design the talent/people elements needed to help support an Agile transition in an organization 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 organization? User stories for HR and a T-shaped HR-person. Employee Journey mapping - pain points. Examples and cases.

Session 2: 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 3: Performance management and examples & cases
Appraise current performance management practices and identify ways of bringing Agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability, and growth. 95/5 Exercise.

Session 4: Compensation and Benefits
Examples and Cases. 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 5: 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 organization taking values, culture, diversity, and collaboration into the hiring decision. Design an onboarding experience that enables new employees to become a part of the organization rapidly and smoothly.

Session 6: Employee Engagement
Recommend different motivational tools to be applied in a context and describe how the traditional employee engagement survey is changing.

Session 7: Learning and Development
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.
