About Agile HR

The fact that more and more organizations want to become agile has led to a substantial renewal of what we traditionally conceive as HR and is called: Agile HR. Agile HR acts on four levels: the organization, HR department, self-organizing teams and HR instruments. It was initiated when an international group of HR experts, including Organize Agile, published the Agile Manifesto for Agile HR development. It provides guiding principles for the role of HR in an agile organization.
