Is company culture or HR practices killing Agile dreams?

Tech Elevator Pittsburgh 901 Pennsylvania Ave #3a , Pittsburgh, PA 15233 (map)

If you care deeply about Agile having a chance to thrive and last in your company, invite an influential leader, HR team member, or both to participate in what promises to be an insightful experience.

Beth Davis, a Senior Professional in Human Resources and a certified Professional Scrum Master, has seen how working in an Agile way is often counterculture to many company’s mode of operating. Coupled with traditional HR practices that unintentionally (or maybe intentionally) perpetuate limiting structures and leave us asking the question “…what made us go down this path in the first place?”

Beth will share how she has identified the limiting assumptions and the real cost of drama in companies that time and again cause Agile transformations to start, make progress, and (unfortunately) stall or worse stop altogether.

Finally, Beth will give you an Agile HR approach she has used successfully and you can take back and apply immediately to your company’s recruiting that will prove how HR can be Agile too!

So, invite your leaders and HR team members to experience how bringing Agile methods and beliefs and applying them to a non-development environment can create a thriving company culture and high-performance organization and taking that first step on the journey to lasting value creation, learning, and measurably high engagement of an Agile culture.
