With our guests Pia-Maria Thorén and Shannon Ewan we dive into how HR – with strong support from leadership – need to be at the head of the change to business agility.
Thorén is a thought leader in Agile HR and the author of “Agile People – A Radical Approach for HR and Managers (That Leads to Motivated Employees)”. Ewan is an experienced leader, Agile coach, and currently serves as the Managing Director for the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile).
Says Thorén, “HR has a very crucial role when it comes to changing organizations: they work with the deep structures… like performance management, change management, organizational development. They choose the leadership programs that leaders go to… They have so much influence over the whole organization so that change is not possible if HR is not on board.”
The duo offer tips and insights into how people in HR and all across an organization can unlearn and retrain themselves about how people should be treated and should operate in a business agility context.
