Agile HR Mindset 2021
The Agile HR Mindset session was a great introduction to Agile for our People and Culture leadership team. Riina delivered an engaging and tailored session that got us all thinking; the time flew by. We had been looking to see how we might leverage Agile methodology to help us better prioritize our work, manage capacity, and be more effective. As a result of this session, we are now exploring what Agile HR aspects we are going to start on as a team – we have already created our team Kanban board!

How are we learning?

The virtual delivery  is split into two 1.5 hour sessions. In between the sessions the participants will have a group work and reflection session on their own. In the sessions we alternate between sharing Agile information and examples, with breakout conversations in small groups where the participants  reflect on what they heard and connect it with their own context and work.

We’re discussing why Agile is important, what Agile is and how it differs from the traditional way of delivering value.
