In this course, we are exploring HRs new role in an Agile organization!
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 still not fully mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, ways of working (like Scrum), and people practices that allow a truly Agile culture to thrive.
You will leave this experience having gained both knowledge and practical skills to bring forward new ways of working and being that place HR in a leading position to creating lasting change, engagement, and a truly empowered workplace.
