Agile HR Workshop
Receive a certification in Agile Talent by ICAgile
Today the most progressive companies have changed the HR role to a more coaching role serving all the people, not just management. Although this changed view of the formal HR role is far from mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, replacing fixed performance targets with OKRs (objectives and key results), and old-fashioned bonuses with profit sharing.
This training gives a holistic understanding of agile HR and will cover; the individual perspective, team perspective, and organizational perspective.
