This training is delivered online and run in 8 2-hour sessions from July 2 - August 20. Read more below.
Regardless if you are an agile coach, a line manager or an HR professional, you need to understand how people strategy and people operations need to change when working in a company embracing the agile value structure. How do performance management, recruitment, learning and development, compensation and benefits and the way we perform employee engagement surveys change? What are the specific skills that we need to use to run an agile transformation from a people perspective? And is there still a need to do succession planning in the future?
The training places great emphasis on practical examples and we will present a series of tools that you will be able to use when getting started on your own agile HR initiative. We take you through an agile HR project from setting goals and developing user stories for HR to implementing sprint planning and monitoring the sprint using Kanban.

Your course leader and facilitator is Pia-Maria Thorén, who has 25 years of consultant experience from large Swedish and international companies within HR and leadership. She is the founder of GreenBullet and Agile People and the author of the book Agile People – A Radical Approach for HR and Managers (That Leads to Motivated Employees).
We are working with Zoom for presentations and team exercises, Trello for keeping track of the agenda items and exercises and Slack for communication between the sessions. There will be some work to be done after every session, so add about an hour more every week. Course litterature and material will be sent to your location or distributed digitally. The certification assignment will be accomplished in the time between the sessions so that you will be ready on the day of the last session.
During the period of July 2-Aug 20, you take part in a 2-hour session once/week. Totally 8 sessions.
Do I need any pre competence?
You don't need any precompetence of agile or HR to attend the online course. We are tailoring the course for the participants and their level, which we will find out before the first session (we will send you a short questionnaire).
How does the process look, for this training?
The training is a copy of the physical training but we will use online tools instead of face-to-face meeting. You will need a good internet connection and an undisturbed workplace where you can have a quiet background. We will work in break-out sessions in Zoom and use Slack för communication between the instructor-led sessions, which will happen every week between 15-17 Central European Time.
All material will be shared via a Trello board and a Google drive. There will be a certification exercise that will be finalized when the training is finalized. We will let you know everything about practicalities during the first session.
Are the classes scheduled on specific days at specific times?
Yes, classes will be scheduled on specific days and time. For each new training we will appoint which weekday will be scheduled. Once a week for 8 weeks in a row.
After training completion, what is the process to become ICAgile Certified?
The process of certification is that you need to finalize the certification assignment, which is to describe how you would turn around HR in a company that has gone bankrupt due to not being agile enough (real case, a Swedish fashion company). When the assignment is finalized (approved with feedback from us), we will make your ICP-TAL certificate download available from ICAgile via a link.
People management consultant and devoted change agent with an enterprise perspective. Main area of interest is Agile Performance Management and how to make people work towards a common vision through employee engagement, with creativity and motivation. Agile leadership and agile frameworks are the best ways to create successful change, in my opinion. My main drive is to see the movement from one state to another in a company, contributing by making that change successful both from a financial and human perspective. My vision is to create customer value and have fun at the same time!
