ICAgile certified Agile Talent training

In this fast changing world, following agile principles enables organisations to more quickly innovate and meet rapidly changing customer needs.

Since people are an integral part of the journey towards business agility, more and more organizations are seeing the value in applying the agile mindset also in HR and people development and how critical that role is for the journey’s success. 

Starting on this journey might raise a lot of questions like…

  • How do people strategy and people operations need to change when working in a company embracing the agile value structure?
  • How can HR support an agile organizational transformation?
  • How can we apply Agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability and growth?
  • How can we create Agile-friendly structures for salaries and benefits?
  • Job Roles – are they needed in the future?
  • What role do employee engagement and motivation play?
  • How can we acquire the “right” people to support the strategic growth of the organization?
  • What are the specific skills that we need to use to run an agile transformation from a people perspective?

During the training we will cover:

Day 1: Overview

  • Why work with business agility?
  • Characteristics of an agile mindset and introduction to agile and systems thinking
  • Organisational structures that enable Business agility
  • HR’s role: critical to an organisational transformation and how the need for business agility affects the HR function

Day 2:  Deep dive into the HR related topics

  • Agile Leadership
  • Designing talent acquisition and on-boarding experiences for agile companies
  • The agile approach to goal setting, performance and salaries
  • Agile learning and development
  • How to create a culture driven by ownership and intrinsic motivation
  • Agile tools for HR departments

What’s in it for you?

In the training we will work with many practical tools, templates and exercises that you can directly apply to your own projects or bring back to your team to start on your journey right after the training.

Every moment in our workshop – from exercises to games to discussions to coffee breaks is an opportunity to share, learn and network – and many participants say that the diverse groups we have in these trainings lead to great cross-functional, beneficial discussions.

You will also receive a free copy of the book: “Agile People – A Radical Approach for HR & Managers (That Leads to Motivated Employees)” by Pia-Maria Thorén.

And all participants who successfully complete the 2-day workshop and post-workshop assignment will receive the ICAgile Certified Professional certification – Agile Talent (ICP-TAL).

We have previously trained participants from Volvo, TetraPak, DEK Technologies, IKEA, SEK, AirNewZealand, and many other companies and organizations around the world. The evaluation of the last completed trainings ended up on average 4.83 on a 5-point scale.
