Agile HR is the application of “agility” to the function of Human Resource Management.
Agility here means developing nimble & responsive management practices that involves 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 to the stumbling blocks they were facing in the process of software development.
Over the time, it has become a widely recognized management methodology across various functions, departments and industries, which adopts a proactive rather than reactive approach.
