The Rise of Agile Work Practices in Talent Acquisition

Agile HR is the application of “agility” to the function of Human Resource Management.

Agility here means developing nimble & responsive management practices that involve constant feedback loops, and teams working in short work cycles & engaging in frequent retrospectives.

The concept of “agile-methodology” came into being during the 1990s in the area of software development. The developers wanted a flexible (agile) solution for the stumbling blocks they were facing in the process of software development.
