19. What is Agile HR and How are Companies Adopting It? Interview with Anna Tavis, Associate Professor at NYU

Agile isn't just for Tech anymore. It's transforming how organisations hire, develop and manage their people. It's also transforming how HR interacts with the Workforce from doing things to employees to designing programs and Technology with and for employees. In many ways agile is the backbone of efforts to design, understand and improve the employee experience. 

My guest this week on the podcast is Anna Tavis, a Clinical Associate Professor of Human Capital Management at New York University and the editor at People and Strategy a journal for HR Executives. She also wrote a landmark article in HBR with Peter Capelli on Agile in HR, so who better for me to discuss this topic in more detail. In our conversation, Anna and I discuss: 

  • What agile HR means and why it is becoming increasingly important
  • We look at the skills, mindset and methodologies needed to be successful
  • Anna also talks about examples of how agile is being employed by companies such as IBM and Adobe in HR
  • We also look into the crystal ball like we do with all our guests and ponder what the role of HR will be in 2025. 

This episode is a must listen for everyone in HR, particularly those leading efforts in employee experience, people analytics and other leadership roles.
