Agile HR is the buzzword in today’s business era. Few HR leaders and Change Champions have begun embracing agile principles, values and practices at team and organization levels. However, embracing this paradigm shift in HR function is not a cakewalk for most of the leaders and champions. For the shift to be meaningful and sustainable, the key attributes an HR practitioner should have is an inclination to –
- move away from annual traditional processes to more ongoing and incremental processes
- understand the true essence of what agile is and begin practicing at a small scale
- experiment and learn from failures
- deliver value to internal clients (employees) and support other functions to deliver value to external customers
- practice and promote cross-functional synergy
- build servant leadership and cultural agility
