While the concept of “agile” originated as an approach focused on improving and speeding up the software development process, it quickly expanded to be a full scale “movement” with much more far-reaching impact.
Agile is now being applied on a much broader scale throughout many aspects of modern organizations, including HR. Agile is believed by many to provide the ideal framework for HR best practices in the modern business environments.
What Is Agile?
Agile is a team-focused approach that emphasizes adaptability, involving stakeholders, collaborating for solutions that meet organizational and customer needs while also being responsive to change in real time.

Quite simply, HR success today requires agility – and successful practitioners are well-served by learning how to develop agile strategies to drive their plans and actions. That’s exactly what you’ll learn how to do from this informative webinar.
