Moving Human Resources from Reactive to Proactive
Webinar Designed for HR, Continuous Improvement People participating in a Lean, Agile Environment
On Tuesday, Jun 27, 2017 at 2:00 PM EDT, Patrick Davis, HR Value Stream Coach, Ingersoll Rand, will discuss Moving HR from Reactive to Proactive. Many HR professionals manage their work, and their team's work, in a very reactive way. Many days are not planned…or the plan goes out the window soon after they arrive to work. Patrick will get you thinking, does it have to be this way? Do we understand where our variation comes from and are we actively adopting standards to reduce variation? This webinar introduces basic Lean elements to help HR professionals move past this variation and move towards a more proactive approach to their work.
This webinar is an introduction to Patrick's presentation at the Lean People Development Summit, held September 11-12. The summit is designed for those companies who realize the importance of engaging people, creating a supportive culture and developing leaders at all levels. The Summit will draw professionals from HR, continuous improvement, and leadership to explore how best to design job roles aimed at improvement, build problem-solving skills, define process improvement competencies, and develop leaders at all levels of the organization. This summit was formally known as the Lean HR Summit and has been offered for six years. For more information visit: http://leanpeopledevelopment.com/
