The COVID-19 pandemic has changed every aspect of life. It has particularly changed the nature of work and has demanded faster, and more effective decision-making. This masterclass will review the changes the pandemic has caused to work and impacts on the workforce which managers need to consider. Additionally, it will propose new methods for management of the workforce which will lead to higher performance. Enterprise Agility is a recent application of the Agile methodology which originated in software development. Enterprise agility proposes that there are elements of an organisation which could move faster, reduce bureaucracy, and devolve decision-making to semi-permanent or ad hoc teams specifically appointed for a project or activity. The Human Resources function has faced much criticism due to claimed slow processes, high levels of bureaucracy, and micromanagement of the function. Agile provides a solution. In the masterclass, we will consider redesigning the HR function to improve the speed, decision-making, and effectiveness of the function.

Throughout the masterclass, we will review case studies and practical application of proposed ideas to consider their application in your workplace.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the Masterclass Leader’s new e-book “Never Before: Pandemic Redesign of Work”
