During the training we will cover:
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.
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.
Conditions for Change and Growing an Agile Culture: We look at emerging strategies instead of long-term planning, and new ways of working with strategy, budgets, goals, performance processes, and rewards. We explore how to create conditions for a fantastic culture where people can perform at their optimal level with a sense of being supported and secure.
How HR can support an agile organizational transformation: Assess the current organizational structure and design a new structure that enables business agility, maximizes communication, and collaboration within and among teams and enables the flow of value.
Goal setting and performance management in a new way: Appraise current performance management practices and identify ways of bringing agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability, and growth.
Salaries and benefits for an agile organization: Describe and contrast traditional incentive structures with agile-friendly structures, discuss the pros and cons of each approach, and explain how they could apply them to their own environment.
Job Roles – are they needed in the future? Develop an organizational action plan for role modeling an agile mindset and to build new skills that will enable cross-functional teams.
Employee engagement in an agile manner: Recommend different motivational tools to be applied in a context and describe how the traditional employee engagement survey is changing.
Talent acquisition and the candidate experience: 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.
Agile learning: Suggest ways to enable and support a learning mindset in a team, supporting the shift from a focus on deficiencies to a focus on development of new skills and capabilities.
Onboarding practices for agile companies: Design an onboarding experience that enables new employees to become a part of the organization rapidly and smoothly.
The needed changes in the HR core function: Relate how the need for business agility affects the HR function and organization and how it impacts HR team members’ roles and behaviors.
Practical tools, templates and exercises for HR and managers: How an HR department can work with agile tools and methods, for example with Kanban, Sprints, Scrum and Retrospectives.
