Agile for HR looks at how HR can apply an Agile mindset and various working methods within our own teams and projects. Agile for HR has the potential to reinvent our operational model and help us modernise as a profession.
At a strategic level, people initiatives and services are prioritised based on business value and visualised through a portfolio of work. For example, some Agile HR teams use prioritisation methods to co-create a high level backlog directly with senior stakeholders and employees, which guides their more detailed work each quarter.
Next, Agile HR aims to incrementally deliver this value to the customer. Now, the word ‘incremental’ is significant here and represents a big mindset shift for HR. Incremental means delivering value through small, step by step change, that is validated through a test and learn approach.
