Organizational agility is critical for corporate survival in today’s dynamic global economy. Cultural evolution to the adoption of Agile values, principles, and mindset is essential to long-term success and survival.
HR (and an HR function) is best equipped to support cultural evolution to Agility and continued long-term sustainability. Unfortunately, HR is not usually considered early on in an Agile transformation when they can be one of the biggest impacts and allies to the success of Agile transformations.
This session will explore how HR teams can help seed and nurture the Agile mindset within a transforming organization. We will discuss some of the specific activities HR can and should participate in to support a long-term investment in organizational agility.
Let’s not forget about HR - one of the best qualified and much needed partners for the journey to agility. Oh, and HR can go Agile too, by the way!
