About the course
Learn to integrate ‘Business Agility’ into HR and Talent Management practices to thrive in today’s knowledge economy and changing business context. In the wake of an unprecedented rate of change, volatility and uncertainty for business, inconsistencies in talent management excellence are manifesting at an accelerating rate.
The traditional talent management approaches, most of which originate in the previous century, are no longer fit for purpose. Yet, it has never been clearer that everything can be traced back to talent management. Financial performance, new technological developments and digital organizations are all driven by talent as it creates momentum within the business.
Digital and agile ways of working are forcing us to rethink our conventional ways of doing. In fact, we notice that talent management practices in companies where the HR Strategy is aligned with the companies’ core businesses are starting to align to the concept of business agility too. As a result, talent management practices are moving away from long-range planning and ‘waterfall’ organizational change transformation models and instead, moving towards nimbler talent management methods that allow them to adapt and innovate quickly.
