The second part of this concept of embracing an Agile HR looks at what we as individuals can do to help transform the organization to meet the challenges of this complex business environment. It looks at how we can re-invent the workplace based on a combination of what we know about organizational development and Agile ways of working. Furthermore, it looks for opportunities to improve existing practices by finding any overlooked flaws arising from outdated ways of doing things. This helps enhance and enrich employee experience and agility throughout the organization.
To be successful today, companies must be ready to embrace change at the shortest notice. Customer demands and market conditions change every day. We have to possess a deep understanding of these changes, be able to make quick data-driven decisions, and collaborate with teams that can continuously innovate and deliver immediate value. This is the essence of Agility. It is a central characteristic sought after for an ideal organizational design. That is, hierarchies are becoming flatter; companies are more internally connected and digitized. Nevertheless, these changes are forcing HR departments to come up with more design capabilities to ensure we can successfully guide the development of modern businesses and the future of work.
