Publisher's Summary

Corporate cultures, global mind-sets, and employee priorities are changing, which means that management and human resources departments must also evolve. To ensure that teams are well-crafted, motivated, and successful, managers and HR professionals must step outside their comfort zone and adapt to younger, newer ways of thinking - they must become Agile.

In Agile People, Agile people coach Pia-Maria Thoren outlines how managers and human resources professionals, company decision-makers, and employees can adopt the flexible, fluid, customer-focused mind-set of modern tech companies to inspire their workers and strengthen their organizations. 

This essential handbook explains both the theories behind the Agile framework and the practical applications, showing how companies can do the following:

  • Create a structure and culture for an organization to meet future challenges
  • Give management and HR the changed mind-set and the tools to facilitate employee motivation and performance
  • Empower employees to become motivated stakeholders
  • Adopt hiring practices that value attitude and behavior as well as competence
  • Create a passionate, loyal, and accomplished workforce

No matter what size a company is, it can benefit from an Agile mind-set and launch into a future filled with successful leadership and motivated employees. Pia-Maria was perhaps the first person in the world to link the terms “Agile” and “HR”. Now, it’s becoming clear that she is the pioneer of a fast-growing global movement - Agile People.

As inspiration director for her company Agile People, Pia-Maria is a key influencer in Agile HR, leadership, and motivation, a popular guest at conferences, and participates in numerous interviews on podcasts and blogs. In a personal, informal way - Scandinavian style - she makes it very clear that leadership needs to change.

A very good overview of Agile and its family of practices

A good overview of Agile and its family of practices.

The narrator is good, but I really missed having a female voice here. We have more than enough male voices in business books.
