There is often debate when setting up an Agile Capability Program where it should sit within the organisation. A lot of organisations align Agile programs with IT and so naturally they look for sponsorship within this area. Whilst this approach has pluses there are also minuses for this decision. This talk will focus on the HR led Agile Capability Uplift program within Synergy. We will focus on the role HR plays in driving agility and how this type of program lends itself nicely to being part of Human Resources. We will give live examples of how Agile and HR have worked to deliver a new way of working along with the structure and approach which is being used to embed it successfully.
