HR professionals who are not adaptable are potentially dangerous to their organizations! Even worse, their career growth trajectories will be affected negatively. With the dizzying rate of change now evident in the world, HR has to do things differently – embracing new mindset, attitudes and behaviors.


Without a doubt, being adaptable and agile with respect to HR processes, practices and policies have never been more important than it is today. The impact of technology, multiple demographics, shifts from full time to remote work on the world of work make these shifts deeply critical. 
Being responsive to rapid change speaks to Agility and AGILE [as a value concept] has interestingly become highly relevant beyond the tech environment. Today, we see more and more functions adopt AGILE practices to enhance their value delivery. Increasingly, AGILE as a methodology/framework continues to show us what it means to be collaborative, flexible, adaptable and to continuously create value.
In this course, I share salient knowledge and principles which I have gleaned on my journey in Agile and HR, some of which I have had opportunity to share with business and HR professionals across several platforms both local and international.
Specifically, I will be sharing with you:
1. Critical Agile values and principles which have the most impact on the HR function
2. Practical ways in which HR professionals can gain highly adaptable and flexible skills in order to create the most impact on business outcomes especially within a highly disruptive environment.
This course addresses critical gaps in the HR domain. By providing viable resources and tools to effect real change and succeed at it – for the long term.
