Are you working in HR and tired of seldom actually getting things done, before there are ten new items landing onto your team’s agenda?
Do you feel that the business stakeholders have no idea of why HR even exists?
Are your HR deliverables massive, all-in-one-go, big-bang implementations that seem to continue forever?
Are you bogged down by the continuous firefighting and amount of HR operations work, feeling that your strategic projects are not progressing?
Do you realise that annual plans are dead. We can’t lead with an annual plan anymore, because everything is in flux and changing more frequently.
We feel you! We’ve been there ourselves. But not anymore. People, may we introduce you to Agile HR and HR portfolio management!
Portfolio management is about transparency, structure and clarity in how to prioritise and manage a continuously changing influx of projects, programs, must-do-operative stuff and other work. We’ve noticed that very few HR teams have a systematic way to manage, measure, prioritise and follow the inflow of work items.
With 11 years of Agile enterprise development experience we can with confidence say that the most powerful development action for adopting agility in a team or unit is professional agile portfolio management.

The world moved beyond annual planning…
If you are leading any kind of HR operations, portfolio management is a crucial skill to learn in today’s changing and complex business environment. Be the HR leader who can implement the tools, structure and a cadence to make value-based decisions with your HR team, offering the highest value of people services with the available capacity.
What is the Agile HR Strategy & Portfolio program?
Our philosophy is that People operations is an integral part of delivering customer value to end-customers of the organisation. The activities managed and developed by HR people must aim to increase the customer value delivery, and thus business value. This program will give you basic methods, structures, understanding, and knowledge about how to organise a whole HR team’s (or HR unit’s) HR work through a continuous and ongoing cycle of Agile planning and prioritisation.
