Performance Management and Agile. Will that work?

A core aim of Agile HR is to design people practices that help make people be awesome at work. Performance Management is often seen as a huge impediment for Agile ways of working. How can we start developing Performance Management practices that support Agile ways of working, team collaboration and new Agile operative models?

We’re partnering with the Bay Area Agile Leadership Network, a great local community who help demystify Agile and discuss, develop and promote techniques for the management of Agile projects and organisations.
