Agile PeopleOps Framework™
It is a dynamic and unified conceptual process methodology that transforms traditional HR processes to Agile PeopleOps practices.
The Journey Towards Agile PeopleOps Framework
Agile PeopleOps Framework™ is the world's first dynamic and unified conceptual process methodology that transforms traditional HR to Agile People Operations (PeopleOps) practices. This methodology gives the organizational leaders and PeopleOps professionals an edge to be agile in today's volatile and fast-changing business landscape.
Internal seismic shifts due to leadership succession, rigid and standard processes or passive/aggressive organizational culture & climate, and collaboration issues between and within teams are critical internal factors that disrupt the organization.
Similarly, external factors like global digital disruption, rise in new talent models, changes in workforce needs & expectations, shifts in government economic regulations, force majeure, and the like contribute toward business volatility and turbulence.
Change is constant, and so is the VUCA. Leaders and PeopleOps/HR practitioners need to embrace new ways of working to build sustainable and human-centric workplaces.
